Vinyl LP pressing of this 2002 album from the alt-country outfit. Folklore was 16 Horsepower's fourth full-length album, originally released on Glitterhouse. As hinted to by it's name, most of the material on the album is drawn from traditional folk music. Only four of the songs ("Hutterite Mile," "Blessed Persistence," "Beyond the Pale" and "Flutter") on the album are original 16 Horsepower compositions. Other tracks include Hank Williams' "Alone And Forsaken," The Carter Family's "Single Girl" and traditional favorites such as "Sinner man," "Outlaw Song," "Horse Head Fiddle," and "La Robe A Parasol." 16 Horsepower was formed in Denver, Colorado. Their music often invoked religious imagery dealing with conflict, redemption, punishment, and guilt through David Eugene Edwards's lyrics and the heavy use of traditional bluegrass, gospel, and Appalachian instrumentation cross-bred with rock.
