Anderson, who splits her time between Nashville and Long Island, N.Y., said she will bring her flamenco guitar and several harp-guitars to the concert, which is likely to include an elaborate new harp-guitar arrangement of a Finnish folk song.
Anderson said performances have taken her to Australia, Russia, Latvia and Japan, and every place has provided fresh musical inspiration. She crosses genres of folk, classical, jazz, bluegrass and international music.
A portion of proceeds from the concert will go to her Music for Life Alliance, helping bring music education to young people who may not otherwise have the opportunity. To learn more, visit murielanderson.com.
