Thomas Stern Obit: Robin Roberts (1928-2020) [Lomax associate] (13) RIP Robin Roberts 27 May 20


I am very sorry to hear of the passing of ROBIN ROBERTS (1928-2020)
(Robin Howard in her theatre work), age 92 following a fall.

Active on the folk scene in the 1950's and 60's. She worked
with Alan Lomax on the COLUMBIA WORLD LIBRARY OF FOLK AND PRIMITIVE
MUSIC series, major work on the disc for IRELAND. Also produced
a number of recordings for TRADITION (NY). Worked in theatre,
and combined the folk music and theatre muses in some stage
work and as participant in the REVELS (Cambridge, MA).

I will post a resource document listing her recordings, film,
and theatre work.

Does anyone know if she appeared on the OSCAR BRAND WORLD OF
FOLK MUSIC transcriptions? These 15 minute programs sponsored by the Social Security Administration were available to radio stations as 12-inch LP format transcriptions. Full details if possible,
but any information appreciated. Thanks!

Heartfelt condolences to family and friends.
Thomas.
