Thread Name: OBIT: Yiddish folklorist Ruth Rubin (1906-2000)
Subject: RE: Yiddish songs folklorist Ruth Rubin
A great loss to the world of music, Somewhere I have an album of 78's that she put out and her books I learned Kagen Gold from sun, and Zhankaye from that Album. I still sing them every year as I turn over my veg. garden. So the songs she collected now go on for an other generation. Back in the late 40's a friend of mine said that her father had dated Ruth at one time. A small world.
