Chantel McGregor – Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal
Thursday, 11th April, 2013
Chantel McGregor is without doubt one of the UK’s hottest blues/guitar talents.
Chantel’s inimitable style combines the inspiration of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the energy of Joe Bonamassa, the intensity of Walter Trout and the haunting vocal of Stevie Nicks.
Described as a prodigy, at the tender age of 14, Chantel was told by major labels “great voice, but girls don’t play guitar like that!” Wisely ignoring that advice, Chantel has burst onto the UK blues/rock scene building a reputation for her stunning live performances
Chantel has toured twice with her hero, US blues guitar supremo Joe Bonamassa and her debut album Like No Other has received widespread acclaim.
Chantel was named Young Artist of the Year, for the second year running, at the British Blues Awards 2011 and received the accolade of Female Vocalist of the Year at the British Blues Awards 2012.
This is an unmissable chance to see one of the rising stars of UK music on the Malt Room stage.
