NPR recently released its list of the top 150 music albums by women of all time. Joni Mitchell's Blue topped the list, inspiring the Smith Opera House in Geneva to celebrate with a tribute concert. One of the themes of Blue is women's reaction to the issues of the countercultural 1960s.

- Connie Deming, singer-songwriter
- Maria Gillard, singer-songwriter-educator
- Lauren Faggiano, singer-songwriter
