The Pittsburgh Irish Festival's Live Stream Irish Music Series has been organized in associated with the Irish Design Center. The live streaming concerts have been taking place all this week with more planned for next week. 

On Friday at 7pm EST IrishCentral will stream Scythian's concert. Scythian came together over 12 years ago when a bunch of college buddies started playing Celtic music in the streets. The band has grown to be a headliner on the US Celtic Festival Circuit as well as a name in the Bluegrass/Americana Festival Circuit. T

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.”

Founded by brothers Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka who are first-generation sons of Ukrainian immigrants, Scythian from the start has been a search and love for the “old-time, good-time music” of many cultures.

The Pittsburgh Irish Festival said of the Live Stream Music Series their mission is to preserve and promote the Irish culture and to support Pittsburgh Irish Festival-favorite musicians who are facing tough times with many tours and
concerts being canceled.

“We hope that this series will bring a smile to the faces of our online community, support bands and performers during this crisis, and perhaps introduce Irish music to many who are not already familiar,” says Mairin Petrone, Pittsburgh Irish Festival Executive Director.
