About Adam Rafferty
"......one of those few artists who waters and nurtures growth into jazz every time he touches a string, or composes a mood a jazz guitarist/composer who interacts personally with every note and melody played within each eclectic style he chooses to liberate.."
Karl Strober, JazzReview
"Adam Rafferty doesn't know the fear of emptiness. There is hardly a fingerstyle guitarist that can reduce solo instrumentals and song accompaniment to their absolute barest tones like this New Yorker. And as one knows, less is often more. Here its about concentrating on the tight groove, which comes across light as air."
Akustik Gitarre Magazine
"Adam is one of the greats. He's got it all, melody, harmony, groove and a big smile! A total joy to hear and see.!"

Butch Kara from KZGM in Cabool, MO
The Appalachian Mountains have provided the inspiration for hundreds, maybe thousands of artists throughout the years. Musicians Al Petteway and Amy White have added to this list with a stirring collection of tunes and songs that both cultivate the rich traditions of the region and begin the process of inventing new ones……Their loving approach to the music and for the land that inspired it seems to be a natural reflection of a bigger love for each other, and for the home they have created in this awesome little corner of the world.
