Muriel Anderson is a guitarist, harp-guitarist and composer who embraces music from all over the world with grace, joy and gentle humor.

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. Among those she has performed/recorded with are Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten, Tommy Emmanuel and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. Muriel’s facility across the genres of folk, classical, bluegrass, popular and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide.
Muriel’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.
The workshop is open to guitarists of all levels. Muriel can help you make the most of your time with your guitar. She will cover technique, arranging, interpretation and inspiration, interspersing performance with discussion. Every participant will have the opportunity to ask questions, to explore techniques for better playing and musicianship. Muriel will also have some new hands-on techniques, riffs, or tunes to teach. Includes a free set of GHS strings to each participant. Bring your guitar and it’s OK to record the workshop if you like.
Her recent release “Acoustic Chef” is a CD of music from around the world with a cookbook of recipes and stories to go with each tune.
