Acoustic finger-style guitarist Shaun Hopper is returning to The Clarion at Brazosport College on Feb. 25.

Hopper, who previously wowed the audience at the Clarion during the 2013-14 season, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m.

Hopper is an unparalleled master of the fretboard, as he merges complex melodies, harmonies and bass lines, along with a one-of-a-kind mix of percussive elements. Whether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, as they soon realize that they are listening to a true virtuoso.

Hopper’s signature style crosses over a full range of musical genres, from folk, classical, Celtic, pop and rock to jazz, blues and percussive-new age.

For this performance, Hopper is bringing along another talented musician to the Brazosport area in Chris Sgammato.

Sgammato is a multi-instrumentalist performer, teacher and composer of various styles of music. Sgammato has extensive recording experience, as he regularly records tracks on voice, saxophones, clarinet, guitar, bass, keyboards and percussion.

The Feb. 25 show is sponsored by EXCEL-Shintech.

Tickets for the show are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, FSA members and Brazosport College employees, and $10 for students and children.
