Scythian Coming Back to Bristol at the Paramount — so get your tickets now!

October 09, 2013

Scythian will be back in Bristol on Friday, October 18, at the Paramount Center for the Arts at 7:30pm — so get your tickets before they're gone! This show is for all ages — $15 Advance Tickets and $20 on the day ofthe show. Rousing and raucous, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays kicked-up Celtic and world music with hints of Gypsy and Klezmer, all infused with a touch of punk-rock sensibility. Take a trio of classically trained dueling fiddlers, toss in a rhythm guitar, a banjo and the occasional funky accordion, then power it with the driving rhythm of a world percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget. Scythian's high-energy, adrenaline-peddling, interactive brand of music is the result of their origins as street performers and has one goal in mind — to get people up on their feet and dancing. Their repertoire ranges from traditional and contemporary Celtic and folk music to the alluring and dramatic strains of Gypsy and Eastern European tunes, and then crosses back over the border to pick up some good old-fashioned bluegrass licks. Scythian includes Josef Crosby (Fiddle/Bass), Alexander (Fiddle/Mandolin) & Danylo Fedoryka (accordion/guitar), Ben-David Warner (Fiddle/Banjo), and Tim Hepburn (Percussion).
