Scott Hopkins has certainly proven he deserves to stand with the best instrumentalist in progressive bluegrass, and his debut CD gives fans of hot picking a chance to hear some of the best young players around stretch out and interact on some challenging and interesting new tunes.” - Ivan Rosenberg

Scott Hopkins' impressive dexterity on banjo is equally matched by the soul he brings to each song arrangement. He's a gift to our region and worth coming out to see and hear, regardless of which of his many musical manifestations is performing alongside him on any given night.” - Justin Behan

After taking lessons with Scott for a year, my playing has greatly improved. He's taught me bluegrass standards while also leaving the door open to whatever songs or genres I want to play. He's even assisted me with my own songwriting. If you want to become a serious banjo player, call Scott Hopkins.”
