Live From My Living Room

Tune in Thursday August 13 at 7:00pm CST for Live From My Living Room with Holland Hopson presented by the Hoover Library in Hoover, Alabama. I’ll perform new works and improvisations for a custom electric guitar/banjo hybrid instrument built by the amazing Jefferson Pitcher. I may also give a sneak preview of a some visualization software I’ve been developing. Check out the entire Live From My Room video series on YouTube.

The Hoover Library has a long history of presenting great concerts. I played there in person (how quaint!) in 2016, and have had my pieces played there by pianist Aron Kallay and the percussion group Iron Giant. Here’s a video of Iron Giant playing my Quartet 60x880120x208 for four metronomes:
