Celtic Fusion Band Scythian to Ignite the Stage at Weinberg Center for the Arts

FREDERICK, Md. - Jan. 22, 2024 - PRLog -- Scythian is set to bring its thunderous energy and eclectic mix of Celtic, Eastern European, and Appalachian roots music to the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick Maryland on Friday, February 16, 2024 at 8:00 PM.

Tickets start at $25 and may be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the box office at 301-600-2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street. Discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors.

Named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian, pronounced as "sith-ee-yin," is a Washington, D.C. based quartet, consisting of Alexander Fedoryka (Vocals, Fiddle, Mandolin, Harmonica), Danylo Fedoryka (Vocals, Guitar, Accordion), Ethan Dean (Vocals, Upright and Electric Bass, Percussion, Guitar), and Johnny Rees (Vocals, Drums, Percussion). Described by Nashville's Music City Roots as "what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling," Scythian is a fusion of technical prowess and infectious enthusiasm. The Washington Post attests, "Scythian's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around, or hoisting glasses." The band's diverse influences, including Ukrainian folk, bluegrass, and 60s & 70s folk-rock, come together in a technically precise and folk tradition-steeped conglomerate. For over 12 years, Scythian has been a headliner on the US Celtic Festival Circuit and a notable name in the Bluegrass/Americana Festival Circuit. The band's success as an independent group, having played over 1,300 shows across the United States, Europe, Canada, and even as far away as Australia, speaks to the universal resonance of their "old time, good time music."
