Inspired by her love of Appalachia, Julia Wolfe based her text for Steel Hammer on over 200 versions of the John Henry ballad. Steel Hammer features the alternately haunting and playful vocalizations of Norways renowned Trio Mediaeval, and stretches the standard instrumentation of the Bang on a Can All-Stars with wooden bones, mountain dulcimer, banjo, clapping, clogging and more. Features the original lineup of Norways Trio Mediaeval (Anna Maria Friman, Linn Andrea Fuglseth and Torunn Ostrem Ossum) with the Bang on a Can All-Stars.
