Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed, passionate and playful. They are all that and they're married, too. Al & Amy are an acoustic performing arts team committed to creating an intensely personal yet universal sound. They draw inspiration from musical traditions across the globe and distill these myriad styles into a rich and unique voice – a timeless recipe for healing, heartfelt music. During their live shows, this husband and wife team captures the hearts of their audiences with the obvious love they have for one another and the colorful stories about the places, history and events that inspire their music. They invite their listeners to seek out and celebrate beauty and joy in all aspects of life.

Al & Amy first began performing and recording together as a duo in early 1995 creating an exciting blend of contemporary, Celtic- and Appalachian influenced, original and traditional instrumental and vocal music on acoustic guitars, mandolin, vocals, Celtic harp, banjo, Irish bouzouki, piano and world percussion. They are among the most respected and well liked acts in the acoustic music scene and have been Artists In Residence at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage and perform at some of the finest concert venues in the country. Their signature sound is heard often on NPR, in independent films and on radio shows across the globe (not to mention all of the healing centers and birthing rooms.) While living in the Washington, D.C. area, they won a grand total of 50 WAMMIES from the Washington Area Music Association in the Folk, Celtic and New Age categories and 5 grants from the Maryland State Arts Council for both composition and instrumental performance. In 2001, they won a coveted “INDIE” award in the Acoustic Instrumental category from the Association for Independent Music (now part of the Grammy organization.) In 2005, Al received a GRAMMY Award from NARAS (National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences) for his solo fingerstyle guitar contribution to the pop instrumental compilation, “Pink Guitar.”
