Muriel Anderson - Virtuoso Harp-Guitar and Visuals
Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra.
Muriels obvious joy of music, humor, and her comfort across genres of folk, classical, bluegrass, popular, and world music is revered by guitarists worldwide. Considered one of the worlds foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, as well as an inspired composer, she is an engaging performer with a unique approach to the instrument. One minute she launches into a startlingly authentic Spanish-style original, then a Beatles tune, and next virtually transforms the guitar into Bluegrass band, a marching band, then a Japanese koto. Muriels innovative, double CD that lights up, Nightlight Daylight was chosen as one of the top 10 CDs of the decade by Guitar Player Magazine. Her shows are highlighted by a backdrop of stunning visuals by celebrated photo-artist Bryan Allen, bringing you on a world tour, and even into space. Muriel's concerts are a gift that make lasting sonic memories of joy and beauty.
"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."
