Favored Nation’s Recording Artist:
|Acoustic “Fingerstyle” Guitar wizard Shaun Hopper is back, bringing along his prodigious mastery of the fret-board, vivacious wit and neck-popping compositions. Shaun’s repertoire covers nearly every genre of music: Blues, Pop, Rock, Folk, Classical, Jazz, Celtic and a one-of-a-kind Percussive Style which completely mesmerizes audiences. Click performance link above for sample.|
Hopper’s stagecraft is equally impressive. Weaving in humorous tales from his small town Georgia roots along with an occasional glimpse into his “backwoods” upbringing, he stirs his audience with both laughter and introspection. Moving thematically through his repertoire, Shaun takes his audience on a global tour from Celtic Imagery and Classical Medley to Soulful Ballads and Jazzy Improvs, all of which he’ll counterpunch with a neck-popping original, a cliffhanging “Nashville hot licks session” or 70’s pop song. If that is not enough, he will still rouse up the crowd with a contagious sing-a-long or two.
Expect to hear threads of Beethoven, Bach, Beatles, George Benson, Sting, Segovia, Queen, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer and Dave Matthews ….all selectively placed to captivate. Shaun Hopper is, without question, one of the finest guitar players and solo performing artists in the country.
