Ashgrove Sessions

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Ashgrove Sessions is the first album of The Ashgrove Band formed by Jerry Donahue and Susan Rey and contains 9 cover tracks with updated arrangements and in the case of Donahue, new guitar solos. The album was intended to be a celebration of the 35 year collaboration of the two principle artists and to launch a new touring band but in July of 2016 Donahue suffered a catastrophic, paralyzing stroke.[1]. Due to the severity of the stroke this would be the last project that Donahue would perform on[2]. Fortunately all tracks for the album had been recorded and Rey took over the mixing duties finally releasing the album in March of 2017[3]
