Thanks to Eddie Mathis of the Six String Social Club for sending this along about next Saturday's concert at the Unitarian Universalist Metro Atlanta North Church in Roswell:
Award-winning, critically acclaimed, passionate and playful, AI Petteway & Amy White offer an intoxicating blend of musical styles. Their repertoire includes original, traditional, contemporary Celtic- and Appalachian influenced music with occasional nods to rock and jazz.
Their performances feature acoustic guitar, mandolin, Celtic harp, piano, banjo, lap dulcimer, world percussion, and a touch of vocals. Al & Amy will bring their signature sound to The Six String Social Club, 11420 Crabapple Road, Roswell, GA at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 12, 2013.
Tickets are $30 in advance; $35 day of show. Al Petteway will also conduct a master class prior to the show at 3 p.m. Advance tickets are available at www.sixstringsocialclub.com.
Before moving from the Washington, DC area to the mountains of Western North Carolina, AI & Amy won 50 WAMMIE Awards from the Washington Area Music Association. In addition, they were awarded 5 separate grants from the Maryland State Arts Council for both music composition and instrumental performance.
They won an INDIE from The Association for Independent Music, and AI won a GRAMMY from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. AI was voted one of the Top 50 Guitarists of all time by the readers of Acoustic Guitar Magazine and in 2008 he won Silver and Bronze medals in the magazine's "Players' Choice Awards."
AI & Amy's music was featured throughout the soundtrack of the 2009 Ken Burns EMMY-winning documentary, The National Parks: America's Best Idea. And in 2010, their album, Cafedon Wood, (which includes the main theme of the National Parks documentary) was counted among the essential albums of the past 20 years in the Acoustic Guitar Magazine 20th anniversary issue.
