Al Petteway and Amy White Concert

Event Date: March 23, 2002 - Virginia Beach, Virginia

Mar 23, 2002
Kimmy Sophia Brown
So much is added to the musical experience when the performers faces are awash with love throughout a performance. Thus went a magical two hour concert tonight at the central library presented by the multi-talented Al Petteway and Amy White. The married couple are skilled on a wide array of instruments: guitar, bazouki, mandolin, piano, drums and ankle bells! They performed many original tunes, and original arrangements of traditional Celtic tunes which they wryly called, "Amy's Original Traditional Tunes."

They played with crisp intonation and emotional depth. Guitar bodieswere struck percussively and unusual tunings and time signatures were frequently employed. Most of their music is instrumental, although Amy's deep, rich voice is simply gorgeous. One wishes it could have been heard more.

In between songs they cited funny, little stories of how their compositionswere born during moments in their relationship or experiences during their travels. Al and Amy have created a magnificent matrimony of love and music, a rare manifestation that inspired the audience to respond with two standing ovations.

Kimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.

She writes the column "From the Back Porch" as well as reviews of music in her column "MusicViews". Her goal in her music reviews is to introduce music she loves to people who may not have heard that particular artist or CD. For information about how to submit a CD for review, click here.
