Short Publicity Bio

Muriel Anderson is one of America’s premier acoustic guitarists / harp-guitarists, and is the first woman to win the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Her gentle sense of humor and her facility across multiple genres including fingerstyle, bluegrass, classical, and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide. She has recorded with country legend Chet Atkins, performed with jazz greats Les Paul and Victor Wooten, with classical orchestra, and now with visuals in her “Wonderlust” show. Her CD Nightlight-Daylight placed first in its category in 11 national awards, both for the music and her innovative fiber optics lighted cover. She currently has a FB video of Mark Knopfler’s “Why Worry” that has well over 5 million views.

Muriel has published a number of books, DVDs, and Truefire courses and enjoys sharing her joy of music via her charity, the MUSIC-FOR-LIFE ALLIANCE. She is host and founder of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT®. 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 Spanish classic.
