His recordings, music books, and instructional videotapes have gained him a large following of devoted fans around the globe. His playing is featured on more than sixty recordings by some of the world’s best known folk and Celtic musicians. Since 1996, he has performed exclusively with his wife, Amy White. They have been Artists in Residence at The Kennedy Center and at Warren Wilson College. Petteway is also the Guitar Week coordinator for the world famous “Swannanoa Gathering” music camp.

In 2005, Al won a Grammy award in the “Best Pop Instrumental Album” category for his rendition of “The Thornbirds” that appeared on a compilation of solo guitar renditions of Henry Mancini compositions titled Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar. Before that he and Amy were awarded an Indie award for their duo guitar album Gratitude. Al Petteway has been awarded 45 “Wammies” by the Washington Area Music Association including the top honors of “Artist of the Year” and “Musician of the Year”. He was the recipient of two Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Awards for Music Composition and performed at the Vice President’s House and The White House during the Clinton administration.

In 2012, he was given the “Master Music Makers” award by Warren Wilson College and the Swannanoa Gathering.

Girls Rock Asheville is a nonprofit camp that empowers youth ages 8-14 through music education. No experience is required, and we supply all of the instruments and gear. We offer full and partial sponsorship for campers whose families are facing economic barriers to participation. GRAVL values diversity of thought, age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interest, learning style, nationality, religion, citizenship status, and sexual orientation.

Campers build confidence and create community with each other while writing music, learning about gear and the mechanics of sound, and participating in a range of empowering workshops and performances by local female-inclusive bands. We are 100% volunteer led. Some campers say that our camp is the best week of their year.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m
    totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
