Scythian

Scythian

Washington DC-based Scythian (sith-ee-yin) began over a decade ago as a bunch of college buddies playing Celtic music in the streets and has grown to be a headliner on the US Celtic Festival Circuit as well as a name in the Bluegrass/Americana Festival Circuit. They found that their brand of high-energy folk music found a resonance that led The Washington Post to state: “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” 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. This spirit took them from the streets to playing for the US president on St. Patrick’s Day and it’s the enthusiastic response they receive that has made each of their 1,300+ shows unique.
