Short Bio

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.  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.”


Press Quotes:

"Scythian's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses." —Washington Post

“[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)

 'Scythian has reinvented folk rock in America' -- iHeart Radio's Arroe Collin

"For the past 20 years we've relied on hip hop to get people on the dance floor, when in reality they just haven't discovered [Scythian] yet."—Arroe Collins, iHeartRadio

Scythian has made MerleFest a second home. "These festival favorites are deeply rooted in Gaelic and empowered with their own musical touches. If you stay seated throughout a Scythian set, you may want to check your pulse."  - McDowell News
