The Big Mumma’s is a soulful journey from the women who started it all.
Often going without any acknowledgement, their music was loud, raunchy and big. Many of their songs made famous by men!..
‘You Ain’t Nothing but a Hound dog’… is probably best remembered as an Elvis hit!.. But in actual fact it was first recorded by Big Mama Thornton.
The Mumma’s are a force to be reckoned with and their stories are compelling, triumphant and tragic… however they will never be forgotten!
