Tony Hooper (born 14 September 1943) is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He is best known as a founder-member of Strawbs together with Dave Cousins. He left Strawbs in 1972 after their album Grave New World, when it became obvious that the band was moving further away from its folk roots towards rock and progressive rock. He rejoined for a 10-year stint in 1983. Hooper has been the guitarist in the Ceilidh & Barn-Dance Band Pitchfork since 1984, and is also a member of Misalliance.
