Jeremy Kittel is an American violinist, fiddler, and composer. Fluent in multiple musical genres, he composes original music that draws from traditional roots, jazz, Celtic, Classical, electronic, and more.
Kittel & Co. inhabits the space between classical and acoustic roots, Celtic and bluegrass aesthetics, folk and jazz sensibilities, and has performed at venues such as Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Celtic Connections, and A Prairie Home Companion. The group released its debut album, Whorls, in 2018, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard bluegrass chart. The album features Kittel along with mandolin phenom Josh Pinkham (named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine) transcendent cellist Nathaniel Smith (Sarah Jarosz and Kacey Musgraves), guitarist Quinn Bachand (Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster) and hammer-dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman (acclaimed for bringing a new tonal flexibility to the instrument). Bluegrass Situation calls Whorls “a feat of new acoustic, string band-rooted chamber music…. whimsical, alluring, and magnificent,” while Earmilk says Whorls is “…a devastatingly beautiful album… a stunning melting pot of classical and folk music, featuring some of the greatest musicians in the genre.”
