Washington DC-Based Scythian 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.  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."  For over 12 years they have found success as an independent band and have played over 1,300 shows all over the United States, Europe, and Canada and as far away as Australia.

Founded by brothers Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, first-generations sons of Ukrainian immigrants, Scythian from the start has been a search and lover 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.  Causing work to cease in nearby fields and mills; and everyone gathering in the barn where they danced all night.  This spirit is what has motivated Scythian from its inception and thier success as an independent band is due largely to thier finding a resonance fo soul amongst kindred spirits that span all ages and races.
