Kerry Minnear (Born on 2 January 1948, in Shaftesburymarker, Dorsetmarker, Englandmarker) is a classically-trained multi-instrumentalist who played in the innovative progressive rock band Gentle Giant during the 1970s.

Kerry received a classical music education at the Royal Academy of Music, with a degree in composition.

Contributing to the band's success as one of the composers and arrangers, Kerry, unlike most of the keyboardists of his time, chose to create natural sounds from his keyboards. Like the other members of Gentle Giant, Kerry is quite adept on a number of instruments including the cello, drums, guitar , upright bass, vibraphone, recorder, and the flute.

Kerry now lives in Solihullmarker (West Midlands) with his wife Lesley and has three children, Sally, Sam and Suzie. Still very much a part of the Gentle Giant franchise, he also composes for film and television.

In the years since the disbanding of Gentle Giant, Kerry has used his talents as a teacher and a church musician. He and his wife Lesley own Alucard Music, which releases Gentle Giant CDs and DVDs.

His son Sam Minnear is a founding member of alt pop band Misty's Big Adventure.
