      Event Description: “BEST GROUP/DUO” in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards.  Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.”  Their sixth album, Yearbook (Mar. 17), and has been described as “nestled in a great pocket, feeling all at once focused on storytelling and intimacy while not being afraid to wield a big musical stick” by For Folk’s Sake. 

      Energetic, eclectic John Beacher to open!
      Presented by Skylands Songwriters Guild
