Picture of Simon Hopkins - Guitarist with Sheer hopody Barn Dance Band

"I started singing and playing guitar in folk clubs in the north east in the early 1970s and then continued to play music whilst living in different parts of the UK, including a few years in the Shetland Isles. A move to the south east in the 1980s saw musical work move up a gear, and I gigged regularly with a number of great folk, blues and R&B bands, both as a guitarist and a bass player. In the late 1990s I joined Zigazag! Cajun Band and subsequently played extensively in the UK as well as in Europe and the USA. I have also backed top Cajun musicians from the USA during UK tours. I currently live in Mid-Devon, play regularly with Sheer Hopody as well as 3DB and 7 Stars Ceilidh Bands, and do sessions and deps as required. When (if?) time allows, I also build guitars!"
