Topic: Chantel McGregor - British Blues Awards Winner 2013
There was a double celebration for Chantel McGregor at the British Blues Awards last Sunday. After being nominated in both the Best Blues Guitarist and Best Female Vocalist categories, Chantel cleaned up as she took the crown in both. Including winning Best Female Vocalist for the second year running.
A full list of all the winners is here.
I don't know the history of all of the previous winners, or whether Chantel is the first female winner of the Best Guitarist award, but its an incredible achievement for any musician to win both the vocalist and guitarist awards.
The British Blues Awards and all the members of the public who voted have certainly recognised the genius of Chantel since she burst on the scene just a few years ago.
2011 - Young Artist Of The Year
2012 - Female Vocalist Of The Year
2013 - Female Vocalist Of The Year
2012 - Guitarist Of The Year
A well deserved double award winner and a massive boost for Chantel as she hits the road again on the autumn tour.
