Dubbed by The Washington Post as "DC's most energetic and eclectic band" Scythian (sith​ee​yin) belts out a high​energy, adrenaline​peddling, interactive brand of music with one goal in mind; to get people on their feet and dancing. These classically trained musicians are natural showmen who seamlessly blend kicked​up Celtic, folk and world music, and deliver it with a punk​rock sensibility. Combine this with the driving rhythm of a jazz percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget. In a single song, they transport an audience across the globe with the alluring and dramatic strains of gypsy fiddles, the bounce of a Celtic reel, and then cross back over the border to pick up a klezmer hook and some good old​fashioned bluegrass licks. Scythian are alchemists in their use of crowd participation. As The Washington Post states, their results are always the same: "...the band's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”
