Video Title:
Ann Savoy - "A Heart Needs a Home" (Behind the Scenes)
Description:
This video showcases an intimate performance of "A Heart Needs a Home," Ann Savoy's cover of her friends Richard and Linda Thompson's original song. Savoy describes her unique approach to the song, which is inspired by her youthful travels between Richmond and England, as well as singing it alongside friend and former collaborator Linda Ronstadt. Video shot and edited by Charlie Weber Shot at Bygones Vintage Clothing in Richmond, VA Purchase/Stream: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/ann-savoy/another-heart Bandcamp: https://annsavoy.bandcamp.com/album/another-heart All other platforms: https://orcd.co/ann-savoy-another-heart For decades, Ann Savoy has been revered for her vibrant recordings and performances of Louisiana Cajun music, as well as for her unparalleled deep-digging into the history of southwest Louisiana's traditional music. Now we join her in a different musical adventure, Another Heart--the spiritual follow-up to her 2006 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt, Adieu, False Heart. With the magical touch of producer Dirk Powell, Savoy explores a wide array of musical influences that date back to her childhood and adolescence in Richmond, Virginia. Featuring several new originals alongside renditions of tunes by The Kinks, Donovan, Bruce Springsteen, Sandy Denny, and more, this album offers a glimpse into Savoy’s formative years and the sounds that set her on the path to become a cherished musical icon.
