REVIEW (2005)Acoustic Guitar:
In the April issue of Acoustic Guitar:
Al Petteway and Amy White, Acoustic Journey
By Celine Keating
Amy White and Al Petteway may hail from North Carolina, but Celtic mists animate Acoustic Journey, a retrospective of their ten years of musical collaboration. In a balanced mix of 15 traditional and original compositions cherry-picked from earlier solo and duo CDs, Petteway¹s formidable
fingerstyle guitar and White¹s delicately nuanced mandolin, piano, and guitar dance like fairy lights in airy filigrees around each other. Three piano/guitar duets have a ruminative, pensive power like that of pianist George Winston, while on the lovely ³Lullaby,² White and Petteway¹s wordless vocalizing has echoes of Irish singer Enya. But compelling melodies, percussive accoutrements, and masterful dynamics hold new-age glibness at
bay, as on the jazzy ³Baker¹s Dozen,² where Petteway seems to be having the time of his life on a fretless bass. The playing is as tight and fluid as only musicians who can read each other¹s minds can achieve, making this a great introduction to the award-winning duo¹s music. (Maggie¹s Music,

"[Al Petteway] is quickly building a catalogue of some of the most beautiful instrumental guitar work ever recorded."

"An innovative instrumentalist known for his open tunings, Petteway offers a rich, dulcet sound that features a fusion of old and new." -- THE BOSTON GLOBE

"[Amy White] of transporting power and beauty...shaped not only by a keen sense of lyricism and dynamics, but also a quiet soulfulness that continually draws in the listener." - THE WASHINGTON POST

"Mesmerizing tone poems...just pure music...[White] continues to paint sumptuous portraits of life situations with a remarkable measure of clarity and color." - JAZZTIMES

This is a great CD. My wife and I enjoy it very much! Thank you.

This CD has become a favorite!!
Fabulous melodies and rhythms woven together on guitar, mandolin, piano, percussion, bass, voice and even a little uilleann pipes. Al and Amy make the perfect marriage in music! Their instruments breathe together as one! I have listened to it in my car for 4 months straight and still find it fresh and uplifting.

We all envy Al and Amy
This CD is packed with sensitively arranged, masterfully executed tracks that manage to visit other genres without losing their essential Celtic base. I don't know how they do it -but it sure works for me! In this household we all envy Amy and Al - who wouldn't just love to make such beautiful music with their partner?
