“Daddy Joe” Hopper has delighted crowds his entire life as a guitarist extraordinaire who also plays banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and can improvise for hours and never repeat a lick!  He and wife Bette have appeared at AHMF many times, but he’s solo now after Bette’s passing in June of 2015.  He continues to earn standing ovations for his Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed repertoire, driving bluegrass tunes, and phenomenal rendition of Flight of the Bumble Bee!
