Muriel Anderson’s multimedia show takes you on a journey in music and stories, with a backdrop of visuals artfully projected behind her. It is a musical journey through space, and around the world with visuals by celebrated photo-artist Bryan Allen. Muriel will share new tunes and stunning visual backdrops from her recent sailing adventure.
Muriel is the first woman to win the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and has performed with country legend Chet Atkins, jazz great Les Paul, and continues to thrill audiences with her unique and joyous style.
Named by Guitar World as one of eight amazing female acoustic players, Muriel is one of the few international touring harp-guitarists. 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, a Japanese koto, a Bluegrass band, and then she may launch into a Beatles classic.
In this must-see, must-hear concert, Muriel’s world-renowned guitar and harp-guitar playing is highlighted by a backdrop of stunning visuals by celebrated photo-artist Bryan Allen.
When Muriel first encountered Bryan Allen’s work, she knew she had found her artistic soulmate – she was amazed to find that his photo-art was saying the same thing as her music. They went on to create the award winning Nightlight Daylight CD, and in the process discovered that their artistic affinity extended to the heart. They started working on how to combine their artistry in a live context, and this show is the result. Bryan’s stunning visuals provide an insightful backdrop to Muriel’s music, accentuating the audience experience as never before. Together they bring you on a journey around the globe, full of joy and humanity, with new tunes, old favorites, stories and images.
Her current release “Acoustic Chef” is a CD of music from around the world with a cookbook of recipes and stories to go with each tune. A portion of the proceeds benefits the charity she founded, The Music for Life Alliance. Her new TrueFire channel brings her in-demand teaching to a wider audience. Muriel is host and founder of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night®.
Her previous release, Nightlight Daylight is a double CD and has won first place in its category in 11 national awards. Guitar Player Magazine listed Nightlight Daylight as one of the top 10 CD’s of the decade! It features Muriel’s concept – the first ever interactive lighted CD cover and includes collaborations with her friends and fellow musicians Victor Wooten, Phil Keaggy, Mark Kibble of Take 6, Danny Gottlieb, Stanley Jordan, Tommy Emmanuel, Earl Klugh, and Howard Levy, among others.
If not busy enough as a world class performer Muriel Anderson has released more than a dozen instrumental CD’s, seven instructional DVD’s and guitar books published by Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, and Zen-On Japan. Her compositions include commissioned classical works for the Nashville Chamber Orchestra and Vox Caelestis Womens Choir, as well as songs, which have appeared as title tracks for three albums by various artists.
