Don Kesson is a Glasgow based folk/country singer, who has recently completed ‘Drinking with the Angels’, his first solo album of original songs written by Charlie Sharkey since splitting with his previous Covers band, ‘The Plank Spankers’. Over the years, Don has built up a following of dedicated fans with his laid back style of performing and eclectic range of songs. He has played all over the country at various venues and festivals, and is a well know figure around the Glasgow’s folk scene. Due to constant requests from members of his audience, he has decided to record this CD of new material.
Don has had many musical influences on his style, in particular Steve Earle, Townes van Zandt, John Prine, John Martyn and James Taylor, to name a few. The new album has given him the opportunity to use those influences and to work with some of the best musicians in the country.
