‘The Cat’s Whiskers’ Suite (for Acoustic Steel String Guitar) is a new work by Roland Chadwick rooted in Anglo/American Folk traditions built to Classical proportions.
The 5 pieces of this suite were written over a 20-year period in Australia, the USA and England and have individually been a mainstay of Roland’s live set but now have been brought together as a major concert work.
The fourth piece, ‘Jenny’s Sunday’ was written in Ealing, London one hot summer’s day for Jenny. This track featured on Roland’s Album with Barriemore Barlow (of Jethro Tull). The piece begins with the chorus and each subsequent musical episode sheds new light on the chorus until it becomes an orchestral climax.
