Posted on: Thursday, Apr 7, 2011
Goin’ Up The Country Blues & Roots Club, Worthenbury Friday April 15th
Roland Chadwick with support from Terraplane Blues
Roland Chadwick, the amazing Australian guitarist makes a welcome return to Worthenbury 3 years after he mesmerised the audience with some of the most accomplished musicianship ever heard by those who attended that night.
Classically trained he has perormed with the Sydney and Boston Symphony Orchestras and also the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra as well as with Lesley Garrett.
Conversely he has also played with electric wizard Steve Vai, Jethro Tull, John Renbourn and Level 42 but it is his passion for Robert Johnson and the blues that makes him so popular on the blues circuit in the London area where he now lives.
However, he is also a great entertainer and keeps his audience amused with his stories and jokes – possibly something to due with the more than passing resemblance to a certain Billy Connolly!
Supporting Roland will be local acoustic trio Terraplane Blues who specialise in pre and post war acoustic blues and comprise Paul Barnard Dobro/vocals, Ian Edwards guitar, blues harp, vocals and Ian Johnston double bass.They were one of the highlights at Worthenbury’s festival last year.
Doors are 7.15 for a 8pm start and tickets are £10 and can be reserved by ringing Paul Taylor on 01978 312755 or Ian Williams on 01978 780807
