Ruth Anneliese Welcome (April 24, 1919 – March 6, 2005) was a German-born American zither player. Welcome learned to play zither as a child, and was familiar with the instrument at age 8, when in 1927, her family emigrated to the United States and settled in New York City

Christmas in Zitherland. Christmas in Zitherland's odd, tremulous sound is highly atmospheric and Welcome's slow-paced renditions of carols like "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "O Holy Night" have a strange allure. Aside from the more uptempo "Jingle Bells"/"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" medley, the adaptations and overall vibe here are pretty easygoing. While zither albums are a fairly obscure commodity, this peculiar little gem is as warm and friendly as its creator's surname.

Anton Karas and Ruth Welcome used instruments of similar design to the one illustrated. After World War II, Karas (according to zither scholar Günter Wittenstein, who was acquainted with him) performed on an instrument of larger dimensions than normal – with a 43 cm standard scale length for the fingerboard strings. The Alpine zither has 42 strings, and differs from the concert zither primarily in requiring the addition of an extension to the body of the instrument to support both the longer additional contrabass strings and their tuners. Alpine zithers are tuned in a similar manner to the concert zither, with the accompaniment and bass strings each providing a full set of 12 chromatic pitches also arranged in a cycle of fifths. Contrabass strings are arranged in a descending chromatic scale.
