CD H-M Todd Menton, Rosie in the Stars $14.95
Todd Menton, Rosie in the Stars
Todd’s new solo release features 12 tracks of Irish traditional tunes and original songs delivered with his unique drive, humor, and multi-instrumental skill. His singing has led punk-folk mainstays Boiled in Lead for over thirty years. Good friends Lehto & Wright featuring Matt Jacobs join Todd on the CD and at the release show, adding their muscular folk-rock to his eccentric, melodious take on traditional music.
Pub songs, ballads of lost love, stories of saints and flying saucers will fill the track list for Rosie In the Stars. Several of Todd’s signature bodhran and vocal numbers will lead the way, rounded out by Lehto & Wright’s powerful electric pulse on polkas, sea shanties, and more.
