Chantel McGregor - Otley Courthouse - Saturday 15th September, 8pm

The Blues came calling first, but rock was always waiting around the corner. Well it would be, wouldn’t it? Coming from the deep south, it was inevitable, but living in the deep south of Bradford, there’s a gritty hard edge to life! A female guitar prodigy, Chantel was told by a major label that she had a "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!" Wisely ignoring their comments, she enrolled at the Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college’s history, to achieve a 100% pass mark at BTEC, with 18 distinctions.

After years of touring and festival appearances, Chantel returned with a vengeance with ten new songs that not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound.

Come along and support one of our most talented local artists, for a night of acoustic blues music from one of the UK’s rising stars.

THAT is amazing . . . . .

No so much a COVER - more of a Clone 8O (Y)

This is ONE of many examples of the original:

I've ALWAYS been a big fan of Robin Trower since the 70's - and had always considered his style just too complex to immitate . . .

Obviously I am WRONG :lol: She is not only a very gifted player, but has studied Robin's style incredibly closely . . . . .

My girlfriend at the time was huge fan - and I went to many gigs with her to see him . . .

IMO, the three-piece is the pinnacle of the art really, especially LIVE.

Artistry has to be exceptional if it's NOT to sound thin and lacking.

The Guitar HAS to be a lead-accompaniment style - as Eric once put it . . . .
