Very sad news. I've been a fan of Odetta's since the early 60's & was able to see her perform in a small, informal setting in 1967 when Montreal had Expo 67. Also saw her a couple of years prior to that at a concert in the old Forum in Montreal that had a number of folk singers of the time as well. She was awesome!!

A beautiful woman, with a big voice & a big heart.
