Jerry Donahue, the “guitarists’ guitarist” or, as the late great Danny Gatton christened him, “the string bending king of the planet”, has performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in popular music: from his early days in such bands as Fotheringay and Fairport Convention; through his recordings with Gerry Rafferty, Sandy Denny, Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, The Proclaimers, John Illsley (Dire Straits), Nancy Griffith and The Beach Boys; through notable performances and recordings with Robert Plant, Elton John, Gary Wright, George Harrison, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Raitt, Hank Marvin, Warren Zevon, Roy Orbison and The Yardbirds, Jerry feels very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with so many of his heroes.
Augmenting his long career as a musician, composer and arranger, Jerry has received increased attention of late for his work as a producer.
