Our good friends and preternaturally talented musicians, The Bang on a Can All-Stars will perform Julia Wolfe’s mesmerizing art ballad Steel Hammer.
Wolfe’s Steel Hammer is inspired by the composer's love for the legends and music of Appalachia, and pulls from both the music and oral traditions of the region. The text is taken from over 200 versions of the John Henry ballad – based on hearsay, recollection, and tall tales – and explores the subject of human vs. machine in this quintessential American legend. Steel Hammer was runner-up for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and stretches the standard instrumentation of Bang on a Can All-Stars with wooden bones, mountain dulcimer, banjo, and more, to evoke the rich instrumental colors of Appalachia. The New York Times calls it a “wild hybrid” and an “obsessive study of the song’s many versions.”
Hear a taste of what's in store during this celebration of music at MASS MocA.
