Acoustic "fingerstyle" guitar player/wizard Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence. Along with his rugged good looks, he's a true southern gentleman whose humility stands in sharp contrast to the prodigious talents he unveils on stage. Merging complex melodic lines, harmony and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind percussive technique, he mesmerizes everyone within earshot. 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 humor and introspection. Dazzling audiences with his fiery originals and covering everything from Chet Atkins to Andre Segovia and from The Beatles to Queen, Shaun never fails to captivate audiences. Whether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize that they are listening to a true virtuoso; a rare jewel in the tapestry of music scenes around the world.
