Acoustic "Fingerstyle" Guitar wizard Shaun Hopper is in town headlining the "All Star Guitar Night", at the Winter NAMM Show 2012, then heading over to The Coffee Gallery Backstage for an exclusive follow-up performance.
This vibrant Son-of-the South will be bringing along his prodigious mastery of the fret-board, vivacious wit, haunting melodies and neck-popping originals. Whether you're a guitar enthusiast or not matters little, Shaun Hopper always delivers a stunning audio-visual performance which stretches the limits of acoustic guitar...mesmerizing everyone within earshot.
Hopper's repertoire is global in scope, crossing and combining musical genres on the fly. Moving thematically through his set, Hopper takes his audience on a tour from Celtic Imagery and Classical Medley to Soulful Ballads and Jazzy Improvs, all of which he'll counter punch with a Nashville "Hot Licks" session, Fret-tapping original or 70's Pop Song. With listeners caught off balance, he is always able to rouse the crowd with a contagious sing-a-long or two. Expect to hear threads of Bach, Beethoven, Beatles, George Benson, Sting, Segovia, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel, James Taylor and Queen. Shaun always raises a smile, a glass and if not ....
a standing ovation.
Shaun Hopper is, without question, one of the finest guitar players and solo performing artists in the country.
