Muriel Anderson is a guitarist, harp-guitarist, and composer who embraces music from all over the world. Her playing reflects a sense of grace and joy, infused with humor.
Muriel 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. Among those she performed/recorded with are Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten, Tommy Emmanuel and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. Muriel’s obvious joy of music, humor and her facility across the genres of folk, classical, bluegrass, popular 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 Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles’ tune and the next, a Spanish classic.
Her release “Acoustic Chef” is an international cookbook with music to go with each tune. Her current project with partner Bryan Allen is Acoustic Sailing. All the latest can be found at murielanderson.com/now.
Muriel is host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT® and founder of the MUSIC FOR LIFE ALLIANCE charity.
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
