Gerry Conway (musician)

Gerry Conway (born September 11, 1947 in King's Lynn, Norfolk) is an English rock drummer, best known for having performed with the band Jethro Tull during the 1980s. Before this he was the drummer for the band Fotheringay as well as for Eclection (other members included Kerrilee Male, Georg Kajanus (as George Hultgreen), Michael Rosen and Trevor Lucas). In their early years, Steeleye Span also drafted on the services of Conway who was a friend of the band; he played on their now-classic "Dark-Eyed Sailor". His studio works also include the debut solo albums of Sandy Denny and Shelagh McDonald and appearances on albums by Wizz Jones. He toured and recorded as a member of Cat Stevens' band for 6 years. In late 2007 he recorded percussion parts on Dan Crisp's debut album 'Far From Here'.

Gerry is currently the drummer in Fairport Convention (on a regular basis since 1999) and Pentangle (occasionally). He is married to Pentangle's singer, Jacqui McShee. He has also been playing with another old bandmate from the Cat Stevens days; Alun Davies, who was Stevens' guitarist, from 1970-1977, in the band, "Good Men in the Jungle", which features Davies' daughter, Becky Moncurr.
