Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
Sandy Denny’s reasons for departing Fairport Convention included an outlet for her songwriting, but a reluctance to tour and be away her partner Trevor Lucas were also key. To wit, she formed Fotheringay with Lucas-named after the Fairport song of the same name. He called on former Eclection bandmate and drummer Gerry Conway; former Dantalian’s Chariot bassist Pat Donaldson came from a recommendation by initial guitarist Albert Lee (who was recommended by Richard Thompson!); Lee didn’t work out, and American Jerry Donahue completed the band.
