1:50 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. – Klein & Hopper
Two of Tampa Bay’s most accomplished musicians have teamed up to create the duo Klein & Hopper.
J. Klein is the winner of 2015 SSA Songwriter Of The Year. Logging in hundreds live performances and countless recording studio hours, J. KIein has performed as a solo artist at a variety of music venues – clubs, wineries, coffee house, bar-restaurants, college campuses, concert halls – as well as outdoor festivals.
Acoustic “fingerstyle” guitar player/wizard Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence, 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.
