Jeremy Kittel returned to Billings for a Saturday show at the Babcock Theatre

Kittel performed in Billings in December as part of the sold-out Celtic Christmas concert with the Billings Symphony Orchestra. On Saturday, Kittel will be joined by his band, which includes Josh Pinkham on mandolin, Nathaniel Smith on cello, Quinn Bachand on guitar, and Simon Chrisman on hammered dulcimer. Fiddle player Jeremy Kittel is returning to Billings, and this time he’s bringing his band for a Saturday, June 18, concert at the Babcock Theatre.

The Jeremy Kittel Band is known for bringing the drive of Celtic fiddling, the spontaneity of jazz and the intricacies of chamber music to their live show.

So far this year, Kittel has been featured on “A Prairie Home Companion” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” He was also commissioned to compose a finale piece in honor of Yehudi Menuhin, which was performed at the Konzerhaus in Berlin, Germany, with violin greats Gilles Apap, Roby Lakatos, Mark O’Connor, Daniel Hope, Didier Lockwood, and Dr. L. Subramaniam.

Kittel recently arranged “Coming Home” for Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble’s newly released record in April featuring Abigail Washburn and Wu Tong.

The Jeremy Kittel Band’s show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door, online at, or at Kirk House of Music, 1530 24th Street West. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students under 18.

The concert is being sponsored by the Billings Ceilidh Fiddlers and Kirk House of Music.
