Since the sudden passing of the one they called the Lonesome Picker, the legion of devoted fans he left behind have gathered regularly to honor him and to celebrate the wealth of music he created over the course of his long career. In honor of what would have been his 76th birthday, Buffy Ford Stewart, his widow and frequent collaborator, has gathered the stalwart band that played behind him for many years. The California Bloodlines John sang about run very deep indeed, and this will be a very special night.
Don Heffington is a drummer, percussionist, and songwriter born in Los Angeles. He learned to play from his Grandmother, Veda Hol, at the age of nine. He played in L.A. with conductor-composer Butch Morris, and others, and has worked and recorded with a list of blues, rock, roots, and Americana artists that defies belief Big Mama Thorton, Big Joe Turner, Johnny Otis, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Leo Kottke, Vic Chesnutt, Van Dyke Parks, Lucinda Williams, Lowell George, Rickie Lee Jones, K.D. Lang, Matthew Sweet, Geoff Muldaur, Tom Russell, Sheryl Crow, and Dwight Yoakam, would be a start. He's just recorded a solo album, Gloryland, on which he sings ten original songs, including a co-write with Allen Ginsberg. Multi-instrumentalist Jeff Turmes has spent the last eight years playing bass for Mavis Staples, including contributions to the 2011 Best Americana Album Grammy-winner (You Are Not Alone). Somehow, he's also found time for a number of remarkable collaborations (Tom Waits, Duke Robillard, Richard Thompson, Gatemouth Brown, Janiva Magness), and three albums of his own. He's a fine songwriter and a wonderful bass, saxophone, banjo, and guitar player one of our favorite musicians. Kicking things off will be the enigmatic Field, who delivers hauntingly personal acoustic songs that have an unmistakable yet sublimely understated groove. Suffice it to say that we are really looking forward to this one.
