Music City’s Resident Guitar Virtuoso, David Andersen, continues to make his mark on Nashville’s music scene. He’ll be appearing at the Music City Center Grand Opening Celebration this Sunday and Monday (May 19th and 20th).
This ironman guitar virtuoso is grateful to this community for embracing him and his music. “I’m so honored to have the opportunity to serve this city proudly,” says Andersen. “Being asked to perform at this celebration is truly an honor.”
As permanent fixture at The Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum where he performs six days a week, this wunderkind also performs at the Union Station Hotel (Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings) and the VIC Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday mornings as well as several high-profile events.
A child music prodigy reared in Long Beach, California, Andersen could play music before he could even talk. An accomplished songwriter and proficient on multiple instruments, Andersen recently announced his ukulele campaign and made his ukulele radio debut in March. His music is currently being played on WAMB-FM. His back-to-back Virtuoso & Virtuoso II CD’s, revisits the repertoire originally explored by his jazz genius Joe Pass and “certified guitar player” and producer/label exec Chet Atkins. You can purchase his music at www.DavidAndersenMusic.com, at The Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum gift shop, the Ernest Tubb Record Shop and at the VIC Bridgestone Arena.
Each day, Andersen gives every new friend he meets at the Country Music Hall of Fame his signature guitar pick and a challenge..."remember why they came to Nashville and to take time to enjoy the music they came here to find." Indeed, with new albums and a landmark accomplishment under his belt, Andersen not only remembers but lives and breathes the music of Nashville every day. With all his experience in Music City, Andersen is a guitar virtuoso in every sense.
