October through May, CT Folk presents semi-acoustic concerts, sometimes on the First Friday of the month.



Friday, October 6th
at 7:30 PM
(Doors Open at 7:00 PM)
First Presbyterian Church Hall
704 Whitney Avenue, New Haven

Ryanhood, an audience-engaging acoustic-duo, features the rich and folky lead vocals of Cameron Hood, the explosive guitar and mandolin riffs of Ryan Green, and their airtight vocal harmonies. Within weeks of graduating college, Ryan and Cameron banded together as full-time street performers at Boston’s historic Quincy Market. There the guys developed a rapport with audiences that has become a hallmark of Ryanhood shows. The duo has now performed in 45 states — where their cross-generational sound has been equally at home in colleges, coffee-houses, concert halls, churches and living rooms.

Ryanhood, named “Best Group/Duo” in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, currently reside in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band.”

Adults: $20.
Children and Students: $10
