      EVENT DETAILS
      The Gathering of JACKSON, DONAHUE and MORTER

      Between them Ray Jackson, Jerry Donahue & Doug Morter have fronted some of the most legendary & iconic folk-rock bands of the last four decades, including Fairport Convention, Lindisfarne, Fotheringay, The Hellecasters, The Albion Band and Magna Carta.

      Jerry Donahue, the “guitarists' guitarist, has graced the records of many well known acts such as Fotheringay, Fairport Convention, The Yardbirds, The Proclaimers, Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, The Hellecasters and The Beach Boys.   His unique style of playing won him the accolade “the string bending king of the planet” by the late Danny Gatton.

      Ray Jackson was the voice of Lindisfarne who had hits like Lady Eleanor, Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, to name but a few. Ray is an incredible musician, whether on mouth organ or mandolin.  His mandolin work intro’d the hit “Maggie May” for Rod Stewart and Mandolin Wind.  His liquid vocals will earn him a place in the folk rock hall of fame.

      Doug Morter has been at the heart of the folk-rock movement since 1969.  He was founder member of Hunter Muskett, The Backroom Boys (with JD), and Then Came The Wheel, and was also one of the front men in Magna Carta and The Albion Band.  Doug was sideman for greats Richard Digance, Maddy Prior and Michael Chapman.

      This trio, the nucleus of current electric folk-rock supergroup “Gathering”, will be playing select dates in 2012 to promote the official release of the Gathering’s first CD, “The Bridge Between”. Jackson Donahue Morter acoustic gigs as a trio are a knockout showcase of superb instrumental prowess, well-known favourites from their individual careers, wonderful new selections, distinctive vocals and lush 3-part harmonies!  Definitely not to be missed.
