Note to You, A; Ruth Crawford Seeger

06/20/1999

She had two sides to her personality, and two sides to her career. One the one hand, she was a collector. She collected and recorded folk music from the heart of America in the 1930’s. But on the other hand, she was a composer of innovative music for the concert stage. Judith Tick has written a prize-winning biography of Ruth Crawford Seeger and she’ll be Virginia Eskin’s guest this week on ANTY.
