The great news for rock-blues enthusiasts and aspiring musicians in Otley, is that Chantel will be playing a solo acoustic set at Korks on Friday 28 February and put simply; this will be a fantastic experience and night to remember!
Winning four awards in the last three years is something that Chantel is very proud of and is indicative of her increasing popularity in and outside of the UK. In an industry where male guitarists have been dominant and received most of the limelight on and off stage, what a refreshing change and a justifiable first in the history of the British Blues Awards, that a female artist was voted Guitarist of the Year!!
Jamming on stage with Joe Bonamassa on two of his tours so far, Chantel is a formidable guitar player, a very talented singer-songwriter and her live performances are truly captivating!
A recent quote in Nightshift, Oxford's music magazine, reinforces this, "Chantel McGregor deserves to be held up as a messiah of blues-rock and given her own mountain, she doesn't strum or pick her guitar but almost bends and distorts it, as if she's channelling the ghost of Hendrix through her fingers"
You can listen to Chantel playing two rocky numbers from her debut album "Like No Other" in her three piece band at https://soundcloud.com/chantelmcgregor or on a quieter note, you can see and listen to a solo acoustic version of one of Chantel's original songs at http://tinyurl.com/olktmlb and her beautiful stripped back version of Bruno Mars "Grenade"; at http://tinyurl.com/oepz2ej
