Acoustic “fingerstyle” guitar wizard Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence, a true southern gentleman whose humility stands in stark contrast to the prodigious talents he unveils on stage. An unparalleled master of the fret-board, merging complex melodies, harmonies, and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind mix of percussive elements, he captivates everyone within earshot. Whtether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize that they are listening to a true virtuoso. Hopper’s original compositions and arrangements of pop tunes are infused with all the cutting edge techniques and flavorings embraced by the new breed of YouTube sensations. Yet, it is his traditional and schooled “approach” to music which keeps him unquestionably steeped in, and inspired by, the greats. The final result is a signature style which crosses over the full range of musical genres; alternative, folk, classical, celtic, pop, rock, jazz, blues and percussive new age. Shaun’s stagecraft is equally impressive and engaging. Weaving in humorous tales from his small town Georgia roots and sharing an occasional glimpse into his “backwoods” childhood, he stirs his audience with both laughter and introspection. His set list is as diverse and expansive as his global aspirations, so don’t expect bluegrass or Lynyrd Skynyrd out of this Georgia boy. Moving thematically through his repertoire, Shaun takes his audience on a tour from Celtic imagery and Classical medley to soulful ballads and jazzy improvs, all of which he might counter punch with a Nashville “hot licks” session, neck popping original or 70’s pop song. Song by song, night after night, Shaun always raises a smile, a glass, and if not… a standing ovation.
