Scythian / Press

“[Scythian is] what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling.”

Nashville's Music City Roots

"[Scythian has] reinvented folk rock in America."

iHeartRadio's Arroe Collins

““I’ve never seen a band engage so directly with an audience or work them over so efficiently. [Scythian gives] no quarter in their quest to entertain and bring a joy to their music that gives it an irony-free, wide open feel of manic possibility. The playing is technically brilliant, but it is the energy that carries the day.””

Camel City Dispatch (Winston-Salem, NC)

“In concert, Scythian proves to be one of Washington's most energetic and eclectic bands…Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around, or hoisting glasses.”

“[Scythian] is becoming one of the fastest-growing festival draws in the country...”

“A blast of string-powered energy from start to finish, the band melds timeless melodies and punk energy for a genre-busting show that’s fun for everybody.”

“...this band takes a backseat to no band as far as energy displayed! They are a riot... ”

“Scythian, with their Gypsy Celtic mix, made huge strides on this year’s festival circuit and deservedly so. Their talent and energy have earned them a huge fan base and top billing at many events.”

“With the recent trend of success for "traditional fusion" acts such as DeVotchKa, Man Man, and Gogol Bordello, it's no surprise that Scythian is closing in on widespread recognition...”

“This is a superb CD, the quality incredible, the talent top notch. 5 Golden Celtic Radio Stars for the Scythian boys!”

“Classically trained Scythian is popularly considered to play Celtic music for people who hate Celtic music, but love rock.”

Washington Post Express

“Scythian is developing a rabid following along with interwoven playing that is sure to deliver a grand time for all who see them.”

“These boys do it all to create a live show filled with passion and audience interaction...”
