I got the recent E-mail from JP about female harmonica players, and I decided to look some of them up. I found some videos on Youtube that I thought you all might like.

[center]Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton.[/center]She has got to be one of my favorite Blues players of all time. I love her voice, and her harp playing. My favorite part of this video is about 4 minutes into it when Big Mama and the other guy (I’m not sure which one he is. If anyone knows, please tell me) start playing off each other.

Here’s another by “Big Mama,” just because you have to hear her voice too. So I chose this song because it’s (in my opinion) one of her best.
Big Mama Thornton - They call me big mama
[center]Geneva Red.[/center]Now she has got the Blues! Her voice just gives me the chills, and she makes her harp WAIL!!

[center]Kat Baloun.[/center]I absolutely LOVE her voice. It’s so deep, it just digs into my soul and brings out all my emotions! And when she really gets going on that harp… Wow! She just lets loose and plays! Love it!
