Boiled In Lead


Boiled in Lead is a world music band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They formed in 1983, going through a number of membership changes over the years. They continue to perform today, most notably each March in Minneapolis.

The band typically plays traditional music from many cultures with the sound and attitude of a rock band. Winners of multiple Minnesota Music Awards, the group has toured throughout the US and in Europe. In the Twin Cities, BiL are honored with a star on the outside mural of First Avenue, recognizing performers that have played sold-out shows or have otherwise demonstrated a major contribution to the culture at the iconic venue.

Their first album, Bold Ned (1985) contained primarily traditional music, much of it Celtic, as well as a cover of "Over Under Sideways Down" by The Yardbirds. With the addition of Robin Anders on drums and percussion in 1986 the band's sound changed: their repertoire include a wider variety of traditional music (African, Hungarian, Serbian, Egyptian, Swedish, Macedonian and Turkish) as well as original songs written by band members. The band recognized this on their third album, From The Ladle To The Grave (1989) by having a note on the back saying "File Under: Celtodelic Rock 'n' Reel."
