Simple Gifts Coffee House is excited to present Muriel Anderson, one of the world's foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, as our 2013/14 Season Opener.
Muriel's facility across the genres of folk, classical, jazz, bluegrass and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide. Her 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, Rodrigo's Concerto de Aranjuez. Touring in the USA and internationally year round, she continually amazes audiences with her technique and endears them with her sense of humor.
Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. She has recorded over a dozen CD's and performs in the US, Europe, and the Far East. Muriel is host of the renowned Muriel Anderson's ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT and founder of the MUSIC FOR LIFE ALLIANCE charity. Muriel received a degree in music from DePaul University and went on to study with classical virtuoso Christopher Parkening and with Nashville legend Chet Atkins.
"Just one hell of a great player a great personality and what I like is the touch that Muriel has on the guitar, the way she plays it like we all wish to play." Les Paul "Muriel Anderson is a good friend and a great guitarist. She deserves national recognition." Chet Atkins
