Seth Hopperis a violinist and multi-instrumentalist based in Knoxville, TN. Seth has a love-hate relationship with music that started when he busted his head on a toy accordion as a small child. He began taking violin lessons at age 9 and later went on to study music for a short while at UT. As a member of the band Christabel and the Jons, Seth toured the US and abroad, including the island of Crete, Greece for the Mediterranean Festival of the Arts. In 2011, he performed as a soloist with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Seth’s unique improvisational style finds a home in a variety of musical genres, from jazz to classical to folk and bluegrass. He can be heard around Knoxville playing in the bands Dixieghost, Kukuly and the Gypsy Fuego, and Leah Gardner. Photo: Tony Lawson
