Guitarist/harp-guitarist Muriel Anderson takes you on a journey of music and stories, with a backdrop of visuals artfully compiled by award-winning photo artist Bryan Allen, in the show “Wonderlust,” set for 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Volcano Arts Center’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.
It is a musical journey through space and around the world. Sometimes whimsical, always engaging, bringing together diverse cultures and settings.
Anderson’s obvious joy of music, humor and her comfort across genres of folk, classical, bluegrass, popular and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide. Her innovative CD that lights up, “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 Discovery.
Anderson is celebrating the pre-release of “Acoustic Chef,” an international cookbook/CD with a tune to go with each recipe.
Muriel is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and has performed and recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. She is the host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s All-Star Guitar Night and founder of the Music for Life Alliance charity.
