CHANTEL McGREGOR £12.00adv

Thursday 08th December

“Chantel McGregor deserves to be held up as a messiah of blues-rock and given her own mountain. She doesn't strum or pick her guitar but almost bends and distorts it, as if she's channelling the ghost of Hendrix through her fingers"  Imagine the tone of Robin Trower, the inspiration of Hendrix, the influence of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the energy of Bonamassa, the intensity of Walter Trout and the haunting vocal of Stevie Nicks all rolled into one........ then let me introduce Chantel McGregor, one of the most exciting rock and blues musicians that the UK has ever produced! At the age of eight Chantel became the youngest person in the country to pass a Rock school exam and at 12, she was jamming in her native Bradford and evolving into an incredible musician. Mojohand are a sophsticated young duo exploring the vast terrain of acoustic blues, soul, rock'n'roll and Americana. Combining the talents of two rising stars on the burgeoning Bristol scene, Mojohand features the stunning vocals of Miss Victoria Klewin and the stylish guitar of Joe Wilkins. Both successful musicians in their own right, mostly playing in bands, Mojohand gives them the chance to enjoy a more stripped-back approach

Countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992’s acclaimed Gravity have earned him a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006 among many others.

Thursday 09th November

Said The Maiden are Jess Distill, Hannah Elizabeth and Kathy Pilkinton, three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music when they reunited several years after spending their school years together in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.  From tentatively performing a few songs at their local Redbourn Folk club in 2012 and later being asked to appear at one of the club's guest nights, the group soon secured support and headline slots at folk clubs and festivals around the country which in turn have led to opportunities to support many fantastic artists including The Fisherman's Friends, Jim Moray, Megson, Martin Carthy, Sam Carter, Hannah James and Sam Sweeney and Clannad.  They were also honoured to join legendary fiddler Dave Swarbrick on a successful UK solo tour in the spring of 2014, and released their debut album 'A Curious Tale' in June of the same year.
