Name That [Yiddish] Tune!

A friend heard this 30-second clip of a Yiddish song as an interstitial on a BBC Radio program. He asked me to identify it; I love it but have no clue. I would love to purchase more of this artist's music if you can tell me who they are?

It appears to be this song.

And here's the Freedman Catalog listing for the song and its variants, which gives a bunch of possible recordings (the song is on a Daniel Kahn recording, but it's not the version you have).

Thanks, both! It turns out that the singer is Sarah Gorby, and her album is downloadable on Amazon here.
