Award-winning fiddler and violinist Jeremy Kittel leads an exceptional band with musical roots spanning the globe. With the drive of Celtic fiddling, spontaneity of jazz, soul of the blues and intricacies of chamber music, the Jeremy Kittel Band captivates audiences and defies categories.  Kittel is joined by some of the most dynamic performers on the American acoustic music scene, with core members Joshua Pinkham (mandolin), Nathaniel Smith (cello), and Simon Chrisman (hammered dulcimer).

Joshua Pinkham, recently featured on the cover of Mandolin Magazine, is regarded as one of the greatest mandolinists of his generation. Joshua has been named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine; his solos on Youtube have been reviewed by Mandolin Cafe as “Jaw Dropping;” and mandolin forefather David Grisman has named him “as certainly one of the most important young improvisers on the acoustic scene today.”

Hammer dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman brings a whole new approach to an instrument that has previously been thought to have limited range and technique. His inventive virtuosic touch and sophisticated rhythmic sensibilities are redefining the instrument and earning the attention of listeners from all over the world.

Nathaniel Smith has transported the cello into multiple genres and styles by transcending traditional cello technique and transforming the role of the cello. Living in Nashville, TN, Nathaniel has performed nationally and internationally with various artists including Mark O’Connor, Natalie MacMaster, Abigail Washburn, Bela Fleck, Darol Anger, Steve Martin, Sarah Jarosz, and Jeremy Kittel.
