About All Star Guitar Night
July 12th, 2013 | Nashville, TN
Show at 7:30 | Doors at 7:15
Now in its 20th year, Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night is NAMM’s longest running, most widely recognized, and most successful sponsored event. ASGN is a unique, guitar-centric event bringing together talented musicians for a night of both acoustic and electric music. The finest pickers on the planet assemble on stage to amaze standing-room-only audiences. The event typically features an acoustic and an electric set, featuring artists with household names as well as up-and-coming musicians.
While the evening celebrates the guitar and entertains audiences, it also raises money and awareness for a very important cause – music education for children. The artists donate their time and talent and the sponsors generously fund this event so that disadvantaged children can have access to instruments and music instruction in their schools.
All Star Guitar Night works in conjunction with Music for Life Alliance and strives to make music a reality for students of all ages and backgrounds. Join us if you can!
We are looking for sponsors for the summer 2013 ASGN show. If you are interested in supporting a great cause, send us an email. We are full of gratitude for all of last event’s sponsors: Presenting sponsor Yamaha Guitars, GHS Strings, Rocktron, Guitar Player Magazine, Reverend Guitars, Kyser Musical Products, AER Amps, Luna Guitars, EKO Guitars, Kala Brand Music Co., U-Bass, Sony Creative Software, Sony Pro Audio, NAMM and our producer, TrueFire.
Silent Auction, Artist Merch & Donations
We’ll have our popular silent auction outside the ballroom (bid high and bid often). It’s for a great cause and you’ll go home happy! Artist merch will also be for sale. Artists donate their time to the evening’s event so take a little bit of music home with you and you’ll go home happy!
NAMM Summer (along with All Star Guitar Night) is moving into the brand-new, state-of-the-art convention center for its 2013 show in Nashville, and we’re taking the show to a whole new level. Music City Center is just south of Broadway on a 16-acre site adjacent to both the Bridgestone Arena and the Country Music Hall of Fame, and sits just steps from the Ryman Auditorium and Broadway honkytonks, where thousands of musical careers have launched.
Founder and host of the ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT® and founder of the Music for Life Alliance charity, Muriel Anderson is widely respected as one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists/composers on the scene today. She is the first woman to have won the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship. She enjoys touring as is evidenced by her “recipes from the road” on her website. She uses GHS Muriel Anderson signature strings on both her guitar and harp guitar. www.murielanderson.com
