Named after Ukrainian nomads, 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. The Washington Post says “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and the shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” “[Scythian gives] no quarter in their quest to entertain and bring a 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." —Camel City Dispatch (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)
