Reseña de álbum

While Alice Gerrard is well known in traditional music circles thanks to her pioneering work with Hazel Dickens and her editorship of The Old-Time Herald, no one can accuse her of over-recording. Her last solo album, after all, was Pieces of My Heart, released in 1996. Calling Me Home, then, is a welcome addition of what one has come to expect from Gerrard's slender catalog: sensitive readings of old-time classics against a backdrop of spare acoustic music. The success of a song like "Old Virginia Hills" doesn't come from a radical new approach, but from the simplicity of Gerrard's down-to-earth vocal, the guitar and mandolin backing, and the presence of singer Brad Leftwich on the choruses. To borrow an overused term, the results sound natural.

Gerrard's albums with West Virginia-born folksinger Hazel Dickens, however, rank among the most influential recordings in folk music history. Gerrard's first exposure to folk music came while she was attending Antioch College in Ohio. Inspired by the folk songs played...
