On a 1976 record, she's listed as "Kell Drag", which, given the satirical names the rest of the musicians used, I doubt is her real name.

I watched the youtube link and was fascinated so I wrote to the group's leader, composer Miriam Cutler, and she just now responded. Here's what she said:
Hi Pete - the band was The New Miss Alice Stone Ladies Society Orchestra (Alice Stone for short). We performed between 1973-1980. The tuba player was Liebe Grey. She loved all things tuba, and so did I!


Pete :)
