Jerry Donahue, the ?guitarists' guitarist? is nothing short of a guitar legend. Known as ?the string bending king of the planet? (Danny Gatton, Guitar Player Magazine), he has graced the records of many well known artists such as Fotheringay, Fairport Convention, Bonnie Raitt, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, The Proclaimers, Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, The Hellecasters and The Beach Boys, to name but a few. In a high profile career spanning over 4 decades, Jerry has combined the Celtic folk music of his adopted home in the UK with his American rock, blues and country roots to produce his own acclaimed, unique and inimitable style. A perennial Guitar Player magazine Reader's Poll winner, Jerry epitomises the consummate guitarist?s guitarist. Guitar Shop magazine described Jerry as a "freak of nature" whose string-bending technique could be accomplished only by a "four-armed pedal steeler!?
