CD Reviews

Pure Beauty!!!!
Eric B. Henning | 01/21/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd was featured by the National Geographic Society. Silver Branch, is just one of the many AWESOME tunes in this group of pure listening pleasure. There aren't enough adjectives to express how truly creative and wonderful Al's music is."
As featured in Ken Burns' "Mark Twain" on PBS
Eric B. Henning | Laurel, MD USA | 11/26/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good example of Al's work in the '90's; his songs and arrangements are a bit more complex these days. The music is simple, haunting and evocative, which is probable why documentary filmmaker Ken Burns is such a fan. Two of the tunes from this CD, "Dogue Creek" and "Shadow on the Marsh" are featured in Burns' epic "Mark Twain" on PBS.

If you like superb, emotional fingerstyle guitar, All Petteway is your man. He ranges effortlessly from Celtic to Appalachian to blues. He and Amy White have some wonderful holiday albums, too - perfect for background music at family gatherings or dinners.

The only thing better than hearing the CDs is seeing Al and Amy live. Get on their email list and see them if you can."
GREAT!!
