Artists biography

Al Petteway is a Grammy & Indie Award Winner, best known for his lyrical and powerful fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing heard on dozens of recordings, instructional videos, and film soundtracks, including several PBS documentaries by Ken Burns, most notably the Emmy-winning film “The National Parks-America’s Best Idea.” Al’s compositions are strongly influenced by the Celtic, Folk, Rock and Blues styles he has performed in the studio and on stage with many of the best-known artists in those genres. He was voted one of the “Top Fifty Acoustic Guitarists of All Time” by the readers of Acoustic Guitar Magazine and for more than twenty years, he has coordinated the Guitar Week program for The Swannanoa Gathering summer music camp near Asheville, NC. Al lives high in the mountains with his wife and musical partner Amy White along with an endlessly entertaining variety of domestic and wild critters.
