The Clarion at Brazosport College is pleased to welcome the impressive talents of fingerstyle guitarist Shaun Hopper on January 31.
An unparalleled master of the fret-board, Hopper merges complex melodies, harmonies and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind mix of percussive elements that captivates everyone within earshot. Whether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize they are listening to a true virtuoso.
 
Hopper’s signature style spans a full range of musical genres, including Alternative, Folk, Classical, Celtic, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues and Percussive New Age.

Hopper's stagecraft is equally impressive. He weaves in humorous tales from his small-town Georgia roots and stirs the audience with both humor and introspection. Moving thematically through his repertoire, Hopper takes his audience on a global tour from Celtic Imagery and Classical Medley to Soulful Ballads and Jazzy Improvs, all of which he counters with a cliff hanging Nashville "hot licks session", neck-popping original or 70's pop song.

Hopper is unquestionably one of the finest acoustic-fingerstyle guitar players in America. With his fiery originals and covering everything from Chet Atkins to Andre Segovia, and from The Beatles to Queen, Hopper never fails to mesmerize his audiences.
 
Shaun Hopper’s show on January 31 at The Clarion is sponsored by Shintech Inc. and EXCEL Group, Inc. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and Brazosport College employees and $10 for students and children.
