To celebrate Mothering Sunday Claire McCollum enjoys afternoon tea with The Overtones… and their mums. The Overtones are a five piece vocal harmony group who enjoy covering hits from the fifties to the eighties from artists such as The Drifters, Al Green, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. They’ve found time to give thanks to their mothers for their influence and help on this special day.
