Linda Hoopes

Linda Hoopes - Guitar & Vocals

Linda started singing when she was little and hasn't stopped since.   Growing up in a musical family, she studied piano for a while, but switched to the guitar so she could practice in her room.   She has sung in choral groups performing everything from show tunes to a cappella early music.

Linda's love of Celtic music started with a college year in Wales that included travels to Ireland and Scotland, and she's studied Celtic guitar with Robin Bullock and Eamon O'Leary, and bodhran with Matt Olwell, at the Swannanoa music camp.   She's currently studying fiddle with Julia Campbell, and looks forward to the day when she'll be ready to add that instrument to her performances.
