Review for Muriel Anderson: 

One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Her CD “Nightlight Daylight” was chosen as one of the top 10 CDs of the decade by Guitar Player Magazine and her “Heartstrings” recording accompanied the astronauts on the space shuttle Discovery.

She has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten, and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra.

Her obvious joy of music, humor and her facility across the genres of folk, classical, jazz, bluegrass, and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide. An engaging performer, Muriel’s unique approach to the instrument virtually transforms the guitar into a lyrical choir, then a marching band, then a Japanese koto, then a Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles’ tune and the next, a Rodrigo concerto. Her video “Why Worry” has garnered a total of over 8 million views.

Muriel is the host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night and founder of the Music for Life Alliance charity. In addition, her new program is highlighted by a backdrop of stunning visuals by celebrated photo-artist Bryan Allen, including a re-enactment of the solar eclipse.
