Originally classically trained, Kittel has studied Irish, jazz, folk and traditional music – winning quite a host of varied awards along the way. He’s won multiple US National Scottish Fiddle Championships, six Detroit Music Awards (for Outstanding Folk Artist, Jazz Recording and Jazz Composer), a Masters of Jazz Violin from Manhattan School of Music and a Stanley Medal from the University of Michigan School of Music to name just a few.
