Biographie de Muriel Anderson en anglais:
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, at Chicago’s Orchestra Hall with the Chicago Symphony and in Tennessee with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. She is host and founder of Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night®, the premiere music event 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, and tours year round in North America, Europe and the Far East.
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, Chopin’s Minute Waltz. Recently she has teamed up with Germany’s top guitar duo, TIERRA NEGRA, adding a new dimension and excitement to her music.
Muriel Anderson enjoys giving guitar workshops, sponsored by her new GHS Signature strings. She has released numerous books and instructional DVDs published by Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, Truefire, and Zen-On in Japan, and was a bronze level winner of Acoustic Guitar’s 2009 reader’s choice award for “best classical guitarist.” She received a degree in music from DePaul University and went on to study with classical virtuoso Christopher Parkening and with Nashville legend Chet Atkins.
