Washington, DC | (Celtic)
- Virtual Musikfest stream – Friday, August 7th, 8:35pm-ish
- Official Website
Musikfest mainstays Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian traditions with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience. Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is ‘what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling’, and the Washington Post says “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” Scythian will be releasing their new album Roots & Stones during this Quarantine crackdown and you’ll hear many of the new songs during this stream.
