A review of Chantel's last performance at our very own festival in August - our thanks to reviewer Tim Hall...
Review: Chantel McGregor at the Cambridge Rock Festival - 6.8.14
Over to the main stage for one of the festival regulars, blues-rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor making her fourth appearance on the main stage. As expected her set was a mix of short punchy original numbers from her début album “Like No Other” and reworked standards used as vehicles for extended guitar workouts, with some spectacular playing on Hendrix’ “Voodoo Chile” and Robin Trower’s “Daydream”. We were also treated to an interesting cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain” and a brand new original that gave a tantalising glimpse of the long-awaited new album she’s currently working on. There was an electrifying intensity to the set that made this a headline-standard performance and then some.
