Like Woody Guthry and Pete Seeger before him, Cameron Sutphin has been traveling around the United States performing classic country music and folk music as a solo acoustic artist.  His debut album, My Guitar and Me, was released in 2011.  These songs resonated with his love of folk and old country music.  His follow up album, Reason to Believe, has a more personal touch.  Come to the library to Cameron sing his songs and play his guitar!
