On Friday, March 10th 2017 at 8 p.m., Scythian, a band with “rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling” will be flaunting their “thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling” on the Weinberg stage just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
This band is riddled with classically trained musicians, ranging from the fiddle and mandolin to the accordion and banjolin. Most of the members have been playing since they were children, but all of them absolutely love what they play.
Alexander Fedoryka, who plays the Fiddle, Mandolin, Bass, and sings, studied in Japan at the prestigious Suzuki School of Music.
Danylo Fedoryka, who plays guitar, accordion, and also sings, was originally trained as a classical pianist and played at the Kennedy Center and Wolf Trap. He switched to guitar in order to join his brother, Alexander, playing Celtic Music.
Larissa Fedoryka started playing cello at 3-years-old and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in classical performance at the University of California-Santa Barbara and not only tours with Scythian, but Latin recording star Gloria Trevi as well.
Nolan Ladewski also has a long list of musical instruments under his belt, playing the flute, whistles, banjolin, guitar, and vocals. He started by playing the tin whistle at 6 years-old and started touring at age 12.
Tim Hepburn, who plays the drums and other percussion, began playing at the age of 5. Although “Tim can bring the thunder on the [drum] kit, his biggest influence on the drums comes from the finesse of the jazz world.”
This spectacular quintet is sure to get you up out of your chair and jumping around as they’ve been doing with audiences all over for 10 years. Don’t believe us? Check out their youtube channel for some sweet tunes!
