Boiled in Lead return to The Celtic Junction for a rocking acoustic Yule celebration. The band will be joined by their friends the Lowry Hill Mummers of The Ritual Drama Team and the Shortsword Rapper Dancers, who will add traditional mid-winter entertainments to Lead's usual blend of edgy dance tunes, border-busting ballads and other-wordly original songs. Bring your dancing shoes and join Boiled in Lead as they brighten the winter air at Celtic Junction.

BiL have been innovators 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 feetmoving. 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 original lead singer Todd Menton and 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.
