Scythian is returning to the Indy Irish Fest in September! As a preview of their appearance at the festival, we have invited them to perform at the Indiana History Center (Indiana Historical Society) @ 450 West Ohio Street on Friday, June 17th.

Washington DC-based Scythian (sith-ee-yin) began over 12 years ago as a bunch of college buddies playing Celtic music in the streets.

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. They were inspired by a tale told by their 92-year-old grandmother of a roving fiddler who came into her farming village every six months or so. Once he was spotted, messengers were sent to all the outlying fields and mills and worked ceased; everyone gathered in the barn where they danced all night and danced their cares away. This spirit is what has motivated Scythian from its inception and their success as an independent band is due largely to their finding a resonance of soul amongst kindred spirits that span all ages and races.

And as a special guest ARBO will be opening the show. A Cajun/Celtic sound that will get you tapping your toes and ready to dance.

Tickets for two amazing bands are $25 and include free parking in the History Center parking lot (first-come first served – but the Center will be closed at show time) and includes all ticket fees. Tickets for the show are very limited so buy now if you want to be sure to have a seat!

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets will be redeemed at Will Call.
