    One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. An engaging performer, her obvious joy of music, humor, and facility across musical genres is revered by guitarists and audiences worldwide. She has recorded with country legend Chet Atkins, performed in New York with Les Paul, across the globe solo, in ensemble and with orchestras. She is host and founder of Muriel Anderson's All Star Guitar Night®, the premiere live music event for over 20 years at the semi-annual NAMM music trade shows, and also the founder of the Music for Life Alliance charity.  She is a prolific composer of music on guitar and harp guitar.  Her new double CD "Nightlight Daylight" has already won six awards. It features her concept - the first ever interactive fiber optics 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, Howard Levy, Jeff Coffin, Tierra Negra and members of the Nashville Symphony.

    Her 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, Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez.  

    She is a regular columnist for Acoustic Guitar Japan magazine and has published an impressive amount of instructional material. She enjoys giving guitar workshops and is an enthusiastic supporter of GHS strings. Her GHS signature classics set has features pure tone and trebles with finished ends to safely secure the strings while changing them.
