Scythian To Celebrate CD Release At The Brightside

A mainstay at Dayton Celtic Fest, Scythian will perform at The Brightside this summer.

Performing at the Dayton Celtic Festival has been a years long tradition for Celtic band Scythian, and although the festival won't be happening in the familiar fashion in 2021, Miami Valley audiences do have an opportunity to see the band perform live this summer. Cindy Funk, host of WYSO's The Dear Green Place, spoke to Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, founders of Scythian about their upcoming shows at The Brightside, their new album, and keeping the music alive.

Scythian will at The Brightside in downtown Dayton on July 22 and 23. Tickets and event information available here.

Cindy Funk has been a lover of folk music of all kinds for so long, she can barely remember when she got hooked. But it's a good bet that it was WYSO that is responsible! In the 1980's, Cindy hosted a Celtic music show on WYSO called "Shamrocks, Heather and Roses" until 1987. In the meantime, she was busy performing in the folk group Sweetwater, that played all around the Midwest. Then, in 2005, Cindy reappeared on WYSO's airwaves with her new show - "The Dear Green Place" - like the earlier show, filled with the traditional and contemporary Celtic music that she loves so much.
