For one night only, the Bradford-born singer-songwriter and contemporary blues-rock artist Chantal McGregor will be playing at the Halifax Playhouse as part of her “Lose Control” album tour.

Fans of the rising star will be able to see her live in concert on Friday, October 9 at 7:30pm, when she will play songs from her debut album Like No Other (2011) and her new album Lose Control which was released this October.

Her music has been acclaimed by slow hand himself Eric Clapton, and even Blues icon Joe Bonamassa has asked McGregor to “jam” with him on two of his UK tour dates.

The artist also featured on a DVD celebrating 60 years of the famous Fender Telecaster guitar, alongside legendary performers The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Albert Lee, highlighting her level of talent and adding new numbers to her fanbase.

Described by the legendary BBC Radio 2 presenter Paul Jones as a “fine singer” and “a stunning guitarist”, McGregor has gained attention for her energetic and soulful sounds, being compared to the likes of Eva Cassidy and Jimi Hendrix.

This high profile recognition has led her to win an array of British Blues Awards - Young Artist of the Year 2011; Female Vocalist of the Year 2012; Female Vocalist of the Year and Guitarist of the Year 2013; and Guitarist of the Year 2014!

McGregor’s new album was recorded with producer Livingstone Brown - who has worked alongside popular acts such as Ed Sheeran and Shakira - creating new material that serves as a transition from conventional Blues to a bolder, harder rock sound.

Enjoy these edgy and creative sounds at the Halifax Playhouse this October in what will be an exciting evening watching one of the UK’s most exciting emerging talents.
