    Biography

    Scythian is a Celtic/Celtic rock band based in the DC Metro Area (US) that formed in 2002 and went full-time in 2004. Their latest studio album, "Old Tin Can," is the band's seventh studio album. The band's name, according to the members of Scythian, means "a bunch of pre-Mesopotamian barbarians who did not use forks or phonics," to describe a varying sound that encompasses everything from traditional jigs and reels to contemporary covers. The UB Post describes their sound as a mix of Celtic, Klezmer, Gaelic, Gypsy and Rock.

    The band was named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythians, due to the Ukrainian ancestry of Alexander, Larissa and Danylo Fedorykas. The band is comprised of brothers Alexander Fedoryka (Violin/Mandolin/Harmonica/Bass/Vocals) and Danylo Fedoryka (Rhythm Guitar/Accordion/Vocals) as well as band members Josef Crosby (Violin/Bass/Vocals), and Tim Hepburn (Percussion/Drums).

    Since its inception, Scythian developed from a group of street performers in Alexandria, VA to the 2009 winner of Washington City Paper's Best of DC 'Best Local Band' competition. In 2004 the band scored a brief appearance in the M. Night Shyamalan film The Village. The band has toured extensively on the East Coast (US). In 2011, Ben-David Warner began touring with Scythian, greatly strengthening their live sound. He left the band in 2014, returning to play once in 2015 while the band was on tour. He also makes an appearance on Old Tin Can. In July 2011, Michael Ounallah left the band. He was replaced by Andrew Toy as drummer who played through 2013. The band's current drummer is Tim Hepburn.
