On Sunday, October 9, at 4PM, the West Kortright Centre presents Kittel & Co., a cutting-edge American acoustic band led by Grammy-nominated composer and violinist Jeremy Kittel. Kittel & Co. inhabits the space between classical and acoustic roots, Celtic and bluegrass aesthetics, and folk and jazz sensibilities.

Previously a member of the Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet, Jeremy Kittel has also collaborated with a wide diversity of artists including My Morning Jacket, Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, and Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn. Fluent in multiple musical genres, Kittel composes original music that draws from a wide variety of influences, earning himself a 2019 Grammy nomination for “Best Instrumental Composition.” As Kittel & Co., Jeremy Kittel (fiddle), Josh Pinkham (mandolin), Quinn Bachand (guitar), Jacob Warren (bass), and Simon Chrisman (hammer-dulcimer) coalesce into a singular sound that’s thrilled audiences from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to A Prairie Home Companion.
