Folk-Rock Duo Ryanhood Returns to Seaside Repertory Theatre

Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, acoustic duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene, where Campus Activities Magazine would name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.” They’ve since gone on to perform more than 1000 shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, and many more. 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.”

They were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City, and were profiled Acoustic Guitar Magazine this past September. Their seventh and most recent release, Early Best, is a carefully curated collection of songs from the band’s early years, which saw them springboard from Boston street performers to tour mates with Jason Mraz. They 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” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).

Ryanhood is on tour promoting their latest album, Early Best, and will perform at The REP Theatre, on 11/7/19 starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30, $24 for REP members.  The REP Theatre is located at 216 Quincy Cir, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT RYANHOOD

 
“Discovery of the year… fabulous harmonies and awesome musical chops.”
– John Platt, WFUV New York City

“The duo’s rock roots are evident in their high-energy performances and especially in the guitar work of Green… [but] their music taps into contemporary folk and pop too, showcasing tight vocal harmonies as much as instrumental interplay.” 
– Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“True showmanship… they consistently deliver an amazing performance”  
– CD Blender

“There were touches of the magic that Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel capture so flawlessly.”
– Raleigh Music

“Nestled in a great pocket, feeling all at once focused on storytelling and intimacy while not being afraid to wield a big musical stick.”
– For Folk’s Sake

“Green and Hood expertly weave pop-sensible tracks that ride the alternative folk wave straight into a medley of musical influences. From a clap-along opener on through the incredible rock-leaning guitar showcase that is ‘Welcome You Into My Head’ and the sweet, unrequited vocal-centric closing number, it’s another compelling installment from the Tucsonans.”
– PopMatters
