Ryanhood Friday, Sept. 14.
Named “Best Group/Duo” by the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, Tucson’s Ryanhood cut their musical teeth as Boston street performers before taking their folk-rock sound on the road. Forming the duo is Cameron Hood, known for his rich, folky lead vocals, and Ryan Green, who adds explosive guitar and mandolin riffs to the mix.
