Scythian returns to The Brightside to celebrate all things Irish and all things Dayton March 14

Scythian loves Dayton, and we'll make this one a night to remember. BE THERE!

Washington DC-based Scythian (sith-ee-yin) began over 12 years 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. They were inspired by a tale told by their 92-year-old grandmother of a roving fiddler who came into her farming village every six months or so. Once he was spotted, messengers were sent to all the outlying fields and mills, and work ceased; everyone gathered in the barn where they danced all night and danced their cares away. This spirit is what has motivated Scythian from its inception and their success as an independent band is due largely to their finding a resonance of soul amongst kindred spirits that span all ages and races. 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. 

THE calling card of Scythian is their ability to engage their audience no matter the venue or circumstance and truly every Scythian show ends with people dancing, smiling, and covered with sweat. This is best summed up by The Camel-City Dispatch  (Winston-Salem, North Carolina): “[Scythian gives] no quarter in their quest to entertain and bring joy to their music that gives it an irony-free, wide-open feel of manic possibility. The playing is technically brilliant, but it is the energy that carries the day."
