Featuring award-winning American fiddler and composer Jeremy Kittel and mandolin phenom Josh Pinkham, Kittel & Co. inhabits the space between classical and acoustic roots, Celtic and bluegrass aesthetics, and folk and jazz sensibilities. Previously of the Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet, Jeremy Kittel has worked with such diverse artists as My Morning Jacket, Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, and Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn. Among many awards, he is a U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and a two-time Junior National Scottish Fiddle Champion, and his latest CD, Whorls, was nominated for a 2019 Grammy. Named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine, and dubbed “one of the most important young improvisers on the acoustic scene today” by mandolin legend David Grisman, Josh Pinkham has established himself as a consummate performer, composer and recording artist. His love of music has led him to explore both new music and the classics of every genre. Known for his live performances, every solo is a testament to his scholarship of Bluegrass, Newgrass, Jazz and Classical improvisation. Making their Celtic Colours debut this year, the duo will perform on their own and, for this Festival only, in a trio with John Doyle on guitar.
