PBS's Virginia Currents recently produced a story on Scythian. This gives the family background of the Fedorykas and explains the philosophy of life which helped form the backbone of Scythian. Its a story of much more than a band - its family and tradition and tipping our hats to the one's that had come before us. We hope you enjoy and encourage you to share!
Washington D.C.'s most energetic and eclectic band.”
