Scythian
Named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays immigrant rock with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance rock concert experience. Celebrating 10 years of getting people dancing all night, Scythian released their new album, Jump at the Sun, this summer, with new songs debuting at album release shows across the country. Ed Helms's The Bluegrass Situation has chimed in with praise, calling "Paint This Tow"' a 'shine-fueled, fiddle-flying hoedown' and "Built These Walls" a 'blue-collar ballad we can all get behind.' Nashville's Music City Roots says Scythian is 'what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling.' Scythian's "Immigrant Road Show" consists of Alexander Fedoryka, Josef Crosby, Danylo Fedoryka, Ben-David Warner, and Tim Hepburn and Larissa Fedoryka.

Scythian will travel to Ireland October 4-11 for a fan tour of the Emerald Isle, bringing 90 of their fans with them.

“[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, North Carolina)

"For the past 20 years we've relied on hip hop to get people on the dance floor, when in reality they just haven't discovered [Scythian] yet."—Arroe Collins, iHeartRadio

"Scythian's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses." —Washington Post

"'Built These Walls' is a blue-collar ballad we can all get behind." —The Bluegrass Situation, reviewing new album Jump at the Sun
Cutthroat Shamrock - (Set time: 9:20 PM)
Cutthroat Shamrock
Cutthroat Shamrock combines the speed of bluegrass with the drive and energy of punk rock and then tops it all off with alittle celtic influence. -Fronted by dual vocals and backed by solid bass lines, the momentum gained by two drummers make this a combination to wake up any size of room. -Each song sounds different from the last yet some how familiar. train like rhythms are traded in for finger picking and the rockabilly slaps of the upright bass are replaced with long dark notes played with a bow. instrumental breaks introduce jigs and reels into almost every song, with guitar leads that would seem more at home on a fiddle or penny whistle.
Second String Band - (Set time: 8:20 PM)
