Al Petteway and Amy White to Perform at Hopkins

Musicians Al Petteway and Amy White will give a performance titled "Music of Romance" in celebration of Valentine's Day on Wednesday, Feb. 14, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

With the use of acoustic guitars, mandolin, piano, Irish Bouzouki, vocals and percussion, Petteway and White play a blend of contemporary, Celtic-influenced and traditional music. This award-winning husband and wife team weaves a colorful tapestry of imagery, stories and sound.

White is a multi-instrumentalist who composes music and plays by ear. Her debut release, Piano Diaries, won the 1996 "Wammie" (Washington Area Music Award) for Best New Age recording and two separate Maryland State Arts Council grants for solo instrumental performance on piano (1996) and mandolin (1998). Petteway's primary instrument is the guitar, but he has also studied lute, string bass and percussion. He has won "Wammie" awards for "Artist of the Year" and "Musician of the Year." Together, Petteway and White have produced two acclaimed albums, Racing Hearts and Gratitude. They have been featured on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."

This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 35th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
