Muriel Anderson: PC: Volcano Art Center

Muriel Anderson will perform at the Volcano Art Center’s Sounds at the Summit concert series on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020.

The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.

Anderson is a guitarist/harp-guitarist who offers a performance described as a journey in music and stories from around the world bringing diverse cultures and settings together, with a backdrop of visuals compiled by award-winning photo artist Bryan Allen.

Anderson’s show spans genres of folk, classical, bluegrass, popular and international music. Anderson’s 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, a VAC press release said.

Anderson is celebrating the pre-release of Acoustic Chef, an international cookbook/CD with a tune to go with each recipe. She is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, the release continued. She is the host of Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night and founder of the Music For Life Alliance charity.
