Join guitarist/harp-guitarist Muriel Anderson for her 29th Annual Concert Online – with special guest Tommy Emmanuel, appearing remotely from Nashville, for an evening of world-class acoustic music, audience interaction, and celebration. You can participate in the show from your home while enjoying home-made fudge, and still have a chance to win a new Washburn guitar donated by Tobias Music – mailed to your home! As always, a portion of proceeds will go to the Music for Life Alliance to support music education. This event will be hosted remotely from the First Congregational UCC of Downers Grove, IL.
Tickets are available now online (with fudge mailed to your home) or pick up tickets and homemade fudge in Downers Grove, IL at Anderson’s Bookshop and Tobias Music. The concert will air on Saturday November 28, 2020 at 8pm Central time. Ticket prices are $25 for the single concert w/ fudge, and $17 for the concert, sans fudge. The Season Pass is $50 and includes homemade fudge, seeds from Muriel’s personal garden, the chance to win the Washburn guitar, and two month access to Muriel’s concerts.
Muriel Anderson’s obvious joy of music and her facility across folk, classical, 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 Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles’ tune and the next, a Spanish classic. Muriel is host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT® and founder of the MUSIC FOR LIFE ALLIANCE charity. Please sample her new release “Acoustic Chef” an international cookbook with music for each recipe!
Many people consider Tommy Emmanuel this planet’s greatest guitarist. His playing is simply miraculous, not only because it would take three or more musicians to do what Tommy does solo, but also the exciting energy and a depth of spirit you can positively feel. This Grammy-nominated musician comes to the guitar like a vocalist, singing melodies through the strings, delivering every nuance and turn of phrase. His music, coming from a genuine and joyful source, is an experience not to miss.
