NAMED "BEST GROUP/DUO" at the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that Ryan Green and Cameron Hood were spotted by a college booking agent and dragged into the college touring scene, where Campus Activities Magazine would soon name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.”

Like two of our other artists at Música Del Río this season (F
lagship Romance & James Lee Stanley), Ryanhood has won a Premier Showcase spot at this year’s Folk Alliance International, FAR-West conference. We are honored that, right after that concert, they will be making a beeline to our living room just for our friends. 

Having first met in high school, as up and coming rock and jazz musicians, their collaboration was actually started just as they both went off to different colleges.  Ryan was off to the Berklee School of Music in Boston.  Cameron was an art student at the University of Arizona.  Mailing each other minidiscs of their musical writing and new song ideas, they would  refine their work together during academic breaks.  This collaboration evolved into their becoming professional busking street musicians at Quincy Market.

Cameron Hood’s rich lead vocals, along with Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies, together just really work the way exceptional music should.

Ryanhood has performed over 800 concerts in 45 states, and is considered the foremost example of cross-generational Americana in music today.  From living rooms, like ours, to college coffee houses,  Ryan Green and Cameron Hood have shown the folk community how the young leaders of two rival high school rock bands can turn long distance collaboration into some of the most talked about (and listened to) new acoustic music.

Join us for Ryanhood’s first visit to Música Del Río on Saturday October 13.
