The 2019 Miami International GuitART Festival presents award-winning guitarist, composer, and harp guitarist Muriel Anderson in a solo concert. She is one of the few international touring guitarists equally at home with fingerstyle, bluegrass, classical, freeform, and international music. She is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship.
Muriel has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. 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, then a Japanese koto, then a Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles’ tune and the next, a Rodrigo concerto.
This concert is supported in part by the Music for Life Alliance.
