Al Petteway & Amy WhiteAl & Amy first began performing and recording together as a duo in early 1995.  Their sound is an exciting blend of original, traditional, contemporary Celtic- and Appalachian-influenced music.  Their repertoire offers extensive instrumental work as well as a fine touch of vocals and features acoustic guitars, mandolin, Celtic harp, banjo, Irish bouzouki, piano and world percussion. They are among the most respected and well-loved acts in the acoustic music scene.  

In 2005, Al received a GRAMMY Award for his solo fingerstyle guitar contribution to the pop instrumental compilation, Pink Guitar.  While living in the Washington, D.C. area, Al & Amy won a grand total of 50 WAMMIES from the Washington Area Music Association in the Folk, Celtic and New Age categories as well as 5 separate grants from the Maryland State Arts Council for both composition and instrumental performance. 

"Al Petteway and Amy White are not only really and truly in love with each other - an energy that ricochets between them during their performances - they're also in love with creating their caffeinated, jazz-spiked acoustic brew." ~THE WASHINGTON CITY PAPER
