With the drive of Celtic fiddling, spontaneity of jazz, soul of the blues and intricacies of chamber music, the Jeremy Kittel Band consistently captivates audiences around the world. Jeremy is joined by some of the most dynamic young performers on the American acoustic music scene – the four-piece band usually includes the core members Josh Pinkham (mandolin), Nathaniel Smith (cello) and Simon Chrisman (hammered dulcimer).
Jeremy himself stands at the forefront of a new breed of fiddlers and violinists navigating easily between a host of musical styles and traditions, from Celtic to classical and jazz.
Strings magazine called him “One of the most accomplished and gifted string players of his generation.”
Irish fiddler Martin Hayes said he possesses “a tremendous capacity to seamlessly blend inventive ideas and techniques from other genres into Irish and Scottish tunes. He does this with stunning virtuosity.”
Some of Jeremy’s recent exploits include: performing as a world-class jazz improviser in the Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet; co-arranging and recording strings for rock band My Morning Jacket‘s latest record; performing at Bonnaroo and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival with singer-songwriter Abigail Washburn; appearing on “A Prairie Home Companion”; and teaching internationally as one of the world’s leading Scots-Irish fiddlers.
