Jeremy Kittel, Fusing Fiddling with Jazz

A lot of students have been asking about fiddling recently, so I figured I'd share one of my favorite fiddlers (and, admittedly, a dear friend), here.  Fiddling doesn't get much better than Jeremy Kittel, the winner of the National Scottish Fiddling competition, ASTA Alternative Styles competition, and multiple Detroit Music awards... all before the age of 21.  Jeremy plays violin and viola, and his band features some great cellists who also fiddle.  Some of my favorite performances are here, herehere, and here on Youtube [click for links].
