The Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic 2018 Hometown Show will set the stage for the group's upcoming “Lake Effect Tour” across the great lakes region. The show will feature new music by the Fiddlers, followed by a guest performance by acclaimed fiddler with local roots, Jeremy Kittel & Co.
The concert is at 7 p.m., April 14, at the Ellen Ewing Performing Arts Center in Saline High School.
After opening performances by the middle school fiddle clubs, the Saline Fiddlers will present their energetic and polished show that features a diverse range of music from American folk, fiddle, bluegrass, jazz, western swing, and Celtic traditions. Spirited vocals and Appalachian step dancing combine with the instrumentals to create an unforgettable live performance. After a short intermission, Jeremy Kittel & Co. will take the stage.
Jeremy Kittel is an acclaimed American fiddler, violinist, and composer. Fluent in multiple musical genres, his original music draws from traditional roots, jazz, celtic, classical, electronic, and more. Kittel & Co. will release their new album "Whorls" on April 13th.
In addition to his own projects, Kittel has composed and arranged for such artists as Abigail Washburn, My Morning Jacket, Camera Obscura, Jars of Clay, Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, and the Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet (of which he was a member for five years).
Kittel is a Saline Fiddler alum and a graduate of the University of Michigan. The Saline Fiddlers are excited and look forward to sharing the stage with Kittle & Co.
