Mama K and the Big Love performed 11 original soul / funk / heathen gospel songs at the Cygnet Folk Festival. The songs (written by David Johnstone) reference the early days of gospel and soul to weave the familiar 'call and response' sound into 60s based funky grooves. The Cygnet Folk Festival is one of Australia’s most iconic folk music festivals. Very highly regarded by musicians and festival-goers from all over Australia and overseas. The Festival is a showcase of eclectic music genres featuring both local and international talent.
