Known as Washington DC’s most energetic and eclectic band, ShamrockFest is excited to welcome Scythian Band to our 2022 lineup! Are you ready for some folk and fun this St. Paddy’s day? Then be sure to join us at ShamrockFest 2022 to see Scythian perform. Starting as a small college band of Celtic jammers to now headlining festivals, Scythian’s journey has helped them perfect their stage presence. The crowd is sure to be dancing, jumping, and raising glasses with Scythian’s “contagious enthusiasm” this St. Patrick’s Day.
“[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."
