Summary: Bluegrass singer Amber Collins discusses the old classic, "Ruby."

Weak in the knees

I heard an expanded version of this on KPCC about a year or so ago. I immediately bought the album (Sweet Virginia from No Speed Limit) and have listened to this song at least every week since. No Speed Limit is now my favorite bluegrass band, Ruby my favorite bluegrass tune. I go weak in the knees when I hear it–– and I love me some bluegrass music! Thanks to Western Folklife for this fabulous piece!
