Yiddish Penny Songs
This site is a collection of stories about, lyrics for, and links to recordings of Yiddish Penny Songs, which are tenement song versions of American theatre and variety show songs, 1895-1925. Their sheet music sold for a penny, hence the name. The collection includes Yiddish Ragtime and Yiddish songs of the Gaslight Era.
Compiled (and some sung) by Jane Peppler
