Muriel Anderson is one of the world’s foremost guitarists and harp-guitarists, and is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Muriel’s CD “Nightlight Daylight” was chosen as one of the 10 best CDs of the decade by Guitar Player Magazine and has won 12 awards. She has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten, Tommy Emmanuel and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. Muriel’s recording of “El Noi de la Mare” appears in Woody Allen’s film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and her “Heartstrings” recording accompanied the astronauts on the space shuttle Discovery. 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.
The program “Wonderlust” includes visuals – moving and still images artfully compiled by brilliant photo-artist Bryan Allen. It is a musical journey around the world in music and imagery and “a must-see as well as a must-hear”.
Muriel is host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT® and founder of the MUSIC FOR LIFE ALLIANCE charity.
