Gig: Chantel McGregor + The Mark Pontin Band – The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal: Saturday, 24th May, 2014
Posted on: Thursday, Apr 17, 2014
The great news for rock, live music lovers and aspiring musicians in and around Kendal, is that Chantel will be playing in her band at The Brewery Arts Centre on Saturday, 24th May 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, 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 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 band at www.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 www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vz97YJDFrg&feature=share and her beautiful stripped back version of Bruno Mars “Grenade ” at www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKUV4QnR7Ls
