Chantel McGregor

Chantel has stepped out in the pro-musician world with her own rock blues trio and her stunning live performances are proving that this is rock blues for the new age, played by a musician born with an effortless virtuosity. If you measure an artist’s prospects by the company they keep, then this miss is clearly heading in the right direction, having been invited to perform on stage by Joe Bonamassa, the American blues star. Chantel released her debut album, Like No Other earlier this year - this affirms her formidable skill with a guitar and it also showcases her genuine talent as a singer-songwriter. Moreover, what greater testament than to be part of a centenary album “100 Years of the Blues”, that has recently been released worldwide, in the company of the all time greats, like Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall & Blues Breakers and many more. It comes as no surprise, that Chantel was voted Young Artist of the Year, in the British Blues Awards 2011. This event is seated in the Icebreakers bar (18+ only) at
