Singer Miriam Dvorin, who is also an impressively zestful violinist, learned the piece from a socialist songbook owned by her grandmother. It is another distilled memory of working year after year in a sweatshop-before there were unions, before there was much beyond survival: Don't look for me where myrtles are green/You will not find me there, my beloved. Where lives wither at the machines,/There is my resting place. I went into a small studio in Santa Rosa and recorded my solo multitrack album Grandma Soup/Yiddish Songs singing my own harmony vocals and accompanying myself on: violin.
Dvorin-Spross, Miriam. 707-527-4999 X9810 mdvorin-sprossarosa. Sings and plays "backup" on her multitrack solo album Grandma Soup: Yiddish Songs on Arhoolie Records as well as appearing as vocalist and violinist with The Klezmorim on Streets of Gold. Producer and emcee of "Chalil: A Program of Jewish Music, Events and Concerns," which aired on Sonoma County radio for eight years.
Grandma Miriam had two wishes for me: 1) That I wouldn't go crazy like my father. 2) That I would marry a nice guy like my grandfather . But Grandma was resourceful. She put herself through teachers college, married Grandpa and had a long career running a gifted and talented program at a Brooklyn elementary school. When I was born, she retired.
