Boiled in Lead St. Patrick’s Day – at The Cedar
Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 8:00pm
KFAI is proud to sponsor a Boiled in Lead St. Patrick’s Day at the Cedar Cultural Center on Saturday, March 15, at 8:00 pm.
The tradition continues, as strong as ever: Boiled in Lead celebrate St Patrick's Day with a full evening of rockin' and reelin' music drawn from their extensive catalog.
For over 30 years, BiL has been an innovator in bringing “folk music” kicking and screaming to rock audiences (and rock music to screaming folk audiences)! BiL’s many instrumental dance tunes incorporate global influences, rhythms, and melodies that are guaranteed to keep the feet moving. Original songs stick in the mind long after the concert is over. The players improvise freely yet stay in sync, playing a vital mix of original and traditional material.
The group and the individual musicians have won over 20 Minnesota Music Awards, and toured throughout the US and in Europe. With the return of original lead singer Todd Menton and the addition of world-travelling eclectic instrumentalists Dean Magraw and Marc Anderson, the highly-identifiable BiL sound surges forward.
Enthusiastic, powerful, technically brilliant, playing a wealth of instruments with extreme dynamics, Boiled in Lead routinely demolishes genre labels and enchants audiences of all ages.
More information is available at The Cedar Cultural Center.
