Band on the Wall welcomes back one of the most exciting rock/blues guitarist the UK has ever produced, Chantel McGregor.

If you measure an artist’s prospects by the company they keep, then Chantel is clearly heading in the right direction: Chantel has performed on the same stage as Eric Clapton, toured with Joe Bonamassa, and has also featured alongside Jeff Beck, Keith Richards and Albert Lee on a worldwide DVD celebrating 60 years of the Fender Telecaster.

Chantel is the darling of the fiercely competitive British Blues Awards; winning five Awards in four consecutive years since 2011: Young Artist of the Year 2011; Female Vocalist of the Year 2012; both Female Vocalist of the Year and Guitarist of the Year 2013; and most recently Guitarist of the Year 2014 for the second time in a row!

Rocking out with her band or performing solo acoustic sets, Chantel never fails to impress. Imagine the tone and inspiration of Jimi Hendrix, the energy of Royal Blood plus the intensity of Black Keys, in contrast with the ethereal acoustic sounds of Eva Cassidy and the haunting vocal of Stevie Nicks all rolled into one.

The Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks.
