Guitarists and vocalists Ryan Green and Cameron Hood are Ryanhood

The two guys who make up the acoustic group Ryanhood seem to enjoy the confusion that their name creates. They've seen themselves billed as if they were one person named "Ryan Hood", and people sometimes confuse it with "Robin Hood", but as long as those people give their music a try, Ryan Green and Cameron Hood don't really mind.

Both share songwriting duties in the group, with Ryan taking the role of lead guitarist and Cameron singing more leads. Their years of hard work busking and street performing are paying off with the release of their newest CD, an album called After Night Came Sun, which is their fourth album to date.

They'll be celebrating the its release with a concert at The Rialto Theatre in downtown Tucson on Friday, November 4th, joined by special guests The Silver Thread Trio.
