ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Contemporary Abstractions In Folk Song And Dance" was basically recorded live with myself of acoustic guitar and Vocal, Tim Young on electric guitar and Sebastian Steinberg on upright bass and contains original material as well as a couple of covers and co-writes including "Seeds On Hard Ground" which was written with TOM WAITS. The music has a strong improvisational base.

LA WEEKLY Best Avant Folk: BEST OF LA MUSIC WINNERS 2019
Don Heffington is known as the drummer of a thousand sessions behind names like Dylan and Emmylou. In 2014, he released his first solo album, Gloryland. Fronting what sounds like a Salvation Army band before they sobered up, it's a collection of folk song laments (or lamentable folk songs) from the perspective of L.A.'s losers. He followed that with 2015's Contemporary Abstractions in Folk Song and Dance, recorded with lead guitarist Tim Young and upright bassist Sebastian Steinberg. That trio plus guests have been packing local clubs like downtown's Love Song bar, wowing 'em with “John Coltrane on the Jukebox” and the Tom Waits co-written “Seeds on Hard Ground,” blending Don's wry spoken/sung delivery with mirthful melody and joyful noise. —Michael Simmons
