Brad Hooper, Maine Folk and Bluegras Festival
3pm, June 16th, Point Sebago
In 2009, Hooper took his talent “off the farm and onto the stage.” (He finally learned how to play the guitar, last Tuesday, at 4 p.m.) Hooper maintains a solid show schedule of professional shows each year and his talent has earned the respect of his fans, friends, booking contacts and contemporary peers.
Most recently singer-songwriter Brad Hooper was recognized as a nominee for the Just Plain Folks 2017 Music Awards, is a two-time Maine Songwriters Contest finalist and a 2013 Portland Phoenix Best Music nominee. “I didn’t see these coming but was quite happy for the recognition of both my talent and hard work,” says Hooper.
With his signature hat and shades in place, Hooper sets his passions in motion and fills the moment with insightfully-written original songs and unique-renditions of songs that have marked his way. Sit back and enjoy the ride, it’s clear Hooper still does.
