"Hall of the Mountain King", female singer, banjo accompaniment, who is it?

I think it's a cover of "Hall of the Mountain King" by Rainbow, sung by a female singer with banjo accompaniment. Unfortunately, I don't know who it was.

I was listening to the radio on the way to the drugstore today--can't tell you what station--and heard a song I was really digging. I think it was a cover of Hall of the Mountain King by Rainbow (the lyrics seem right), but it was sung by a female singer in an eerie voice and a bluegrassy/banjo accompaniment played very slowly. Think like a Nouvelle Vague cover, but with more banjo and creepier vocals. I really enjoyed it and would love to buy it and could kick myself for not having my phone so I could Shazam it.

Right track, but her voice was a little deeper and a little weirder.
