Muriel Anderson's world-class guitar events bring top players together for what are always powerful musical evenings. After the success of our previous "All Star Guitar Night" video, we wanted to follow up with the new direction these semi-annual concerts have been taking. One such concert took place at Nashville's premier country music venue, the Wildhorse Saloon, and the sold-out audience that night heard some of the most amazing acoustic and electric guitar performances they are likely to hear anywhere. We were there with our cameras and captured it all for this entertaining and awe inspiring video.
The artists featured here represent the spectrum of styles and sounds, from classical-tinged lyricism to electric blues; from Travis style thumbpicking to ethereal tapping; from delicate fingerstyle to rockin' country blues. The main ingredient throughout is sensational guitar technique and high-end musicianship from both the guitarists and the top-notch backup band that accompanies them.
