Blues guitarist of the year to perform in Sedgefield
A MULTI-AWARD-WINNING musician is set to delight rock and blues fans when she performs an intimate gig in the region next month.
Chantel McGregor, who was the first female artist to be crowned Guitarist of the Year at the British Blues Awards in August, will top the bill at Sedgefield Rock and Blues Club in County Durham on Friday, January 31.
Born and brought up in Bradford, West Yorkshire, McGregor is very much a rising star in the music world, with critics comparing her to legends such as Jimmy Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stevie Nicks and Robin Trower.
A child prodigy, she was the first student in the history of Leed College of Music to achieve a 100 per cent pass mark, with 18 distinctions.
She went on to achieve a first class honours degree in popular music.
Since then, the talented singer-songwriter has set up her own record label, released her debut album, Like No Other, and has captivated audiences across the UK with her breathtaking live performances.
At the British Blues Awards, McGregor also retained her title of Female Vocalist of the Year for the second year running.
John Brown, of Sedgefield Rock and Blues Club, said it was an honour to welcome McGregor and her band to Sedgefield.
“I can say, without a doubt, that it will be an amazing and unforgettable night,” he said.
“Tickets are already selling fast and I would urge people to book now to avoid missing out.”
The gig, which will also feature a performance by the four-piece North-East band Nena In The Red Sky, takes place at the Parish Hall at Front Street, Sedgefield, with doors opening at 7pm.
Advance tickets cost £12 and are available from 07931-448469 or online at ents24.com/sedgefield-events/sedgefield-parish-hall/chantel-mcgregor/3655507
