Odetta was a female musician who released albums of many different genres, but primarily blues, folk and country music. She has over 50 years worth of material to look into, but not as gargantuan a discography as Ella Fitzgerald, for example.

Note: She has a massive song called "Suite: Ancestors", but because it has very high and low notes on it, I specified which part of the song the notes are in. I also added two G2's from different parts of the song. Below is a list, in case you're extremely curious. It's also worth mentioning this song is live, but adding live after every note is tedious. The other lows/highs from this concert are labelled "live SAC"

Suite: Ancestors: – 27:55
900 Miles
Red Clay Country
Another Man Done Gone
No More Cane On The Brazos
Pretty Horses
Poor Wayfarin' Stranger
900 Miles (Reprise)
Can't Keep From Cryin'

I'm only familiar with Odetta Sings Ballads and Blues, and Santy Anno has the lowest F3 I've ever heard if you know what I mean. Scary voice.
