Kittel & Co.

“Jeremy Kittel's beautiful sound is perfectly supported by his tight and powerful band of cutting edge string players. It's a rare group that can go from zero to sixty in a split second while also weaving such subtle textures into his compositions. They draw you in and then blow you away.” - Tim O’Brien

about

Previously of the Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet, also nominated for a Grammy for, “Best Instrumental Composition” in 2018, Jeremy Kittel has been a composer-arranger-collaborator for such diverse artists as My Morning Jacket, Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, and Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn. He blazes through a Bach violin partita as easily as a Scottish reel, bringing the same intense focus and precision to both. For the last few years the Michigan native, now based in Brooklyn, has been diligently building his own repertoire of music for a wholly original new group. This Kittel and Co. show features mandolin phenom Josh Pinkham (named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine) and guitarist Quinn Bachand (who's toured with fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster).
