On each track Kittel is accompanied by Charlie Wilkie, Guitar; Patrick Flannagan, Bouzouki & Guitar; Tim Sparling, Piano; or Jesse Mason, Guitar. 54 Minutes. Fiddler Magazine, Summer 2003 '[Jeremy has] established impeccable credentials for Scottish fiddling with his first album...' Sing Out, Fall 2003 'Still in his teens, Jeremy Kittel has already established himself as a world-class fiddler.' Bryan Kelso Crow, Celtic Connections National Syndicated Radio Program 'One of the top 20 Celtic albums of 2000, and certainly the best album by a new young artist.' Current Magazine, 9/2000 'His album showcases his talent in a well-chosen series of tunes, including the wonderful 'Tamlin' and the haunting 'Well May Charlie Wear the Crown.' Irish-American News, 4/2003 'At last year's festival Kittel brought the house down - one day after turning 18.' Valley News, New Hampshire, 12/12/02 '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.'
