“[Jeremy has] established impeccable credentials for Scottish fiddling with his first album…” Fiddler magazine

“You’d think he had been playing for decades in Irish Music Halls. Kittel’s fiddle style is utterly convincing; he has the characteristic driven-bow style of Irish and Scottish fiddling, the percussive cuts and rolls, down pat.” Valley News, New Hampshire
