Scythian – November 13, 2021 @ 7:30pm (Saturday evening show)
Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian traditions with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience. Founded by brothers Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, who are first-generation sons of Ukrainian immigrants, Scythian from the start has been a search and love for the “old time, good time music” of many cultures. Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is “what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling”, and the Washington Post says “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”
Scythian (pronounced sith-ee-yin) has grown to be a headliner on the Celtic and bluegrass/Americana festival circuits. The Washington Post wrote that “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” For more than 12 years they have toured across the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia.
From its start, Scythian has been a search and love for the “old time, good time music” of many cultures. The group was founded by brothers Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, who are first-generation sons of Ukrainian immigrants. They were inspired by a tale told by their 92-year-old grandmother of a roving fiddler who visited her farming village every year. When he arrived, everyone gathered in the barn to dance their cares away all night. Their success is due largely to finding a resonance of soul amongst kindred spirits that span all ages and races.
