Muriel Anderson’s world-renowned guitar and harp guitar playing will be highlighted by a backdrop of stunning visuals by celebrated photo-artist Bryan Allen. Together they bring you on a journey around the globe, full of joy and humanity, with new tunes, old favorites, stories and images.

Muriel is one of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, and is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Her recent CD “Nightlight Daylight” has won top honors in 11 national awards. She has performed or recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten, and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra.

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.  Her gentle sense of humor and her facility across multiple genres of music is revered by guitarists worldwide.
