Ed Hopwood is a One-Man Band and music tutor based in London.
He brings together multi-instrumental skills to forge a sound that’s grounded in roots music with a style all of his own; taking elements of Blues, Zydeco, Old-Time & Bluegrass and weaving them into a highly original live show sometimes playing five instruments at once.
Ed’s performances are in demand and he’s warmed up for John Cooper Clarke at Festival No.6, appeared at Shambala Festival, Port Eliot and Celtic Connections, as well as London’s Festival Of The One Man Band featuring alongside artists such as Son of Dave and Blues legend Big Joe Louis.
Ed will be playing a set on Friday evening at our pre-registration party. On Saturday Ed is leading workshops for intermediate and advanced players during he day, and taking the stage for his one-man band performance in the evening.
“Ed’s one man show to a packed tent was pure genius. The Crowd always love him”
