Rhiannon Giddens performs "Calling Me Home" with Francesco Turrisi, from their 2021 album They're Calling Me Home. Video by Robert Edridge-Waks. The song was written Alice Gerrard, the folk music pioneer of whom Giddens says: "Some people just know how to tap into a tradition and an emotion so deep that it sounds like a song that has always been around—Alice Gerrard is one of those rarities; 'Calling Me Home' struck me forcefully and deeply the first time I heard it, and every time since. This song just wanted to be sung and so I listened."
