Welcome to our live stream! Brought to you by Pittsburgh Irish Fest, IrishCentral.com, Musikfest, Appaloosa, Irish Music Magazine, Michigan Irish Festival, Dayton Celtic Fest, and Iowa Irish FestPubliée par Scythian sur Vendredi 15 mai 2020
In conjunction with the Pittsburgh Irish Festival, Scythian was featured on IrishCentral as part of our ongoing IrishCentral Happy Hour live stream series.
Ahead of the show, Dan Fedoryka, the frontman for Scythian, told IrishCentral: “Friday will be our first live stream in a month and we're excited to be trying out our new gear which will give multiple angles and continue to try new things as we get used to this next phase of ‘touring.’
“We're excited because our bass player Ethan just had his fourth child and this will be his first show since becoming a new daddy. We hope people can hop on and help fund the diapers!”

The Scythian live stream is presented in conjunction with The Pittsburgh Irish Festival, who has been running a series of live stream performances since the coronavirus shutdowns began.
Mairin Petrone, Pittsburgh Irish Festival Executive Director says: “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.”

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.
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.
