Acoustic guitar wizard Shaun Hopper is an unassuming presence on stage, but his playing has star power to spare. His finger style guitar playing is infused with a percussive element. His music is influenced by the sounds of Chet Atkins along with Folk, and Irish undertones. Born in Adel, GA, he realized early at age 13 he wanted to play music and has not let up since. He has been making a mark with his music by opening for acts like The John Jorgenson Quintet (Elton John), Bobby Yang, Switchfoot, Pierre Bensusan, The California Guitar Trio and has toured with Tim Reynolds from the Dave Matthews Band.
