6.5 Perfectly Legit Reasons to be Late in Frederick

1. You’re stuck behind a tractor

You think “Aww yeah, gonna get to work on time.”

That huge line of cars behind that tractor says “Maybe tomorrow.”

 

2. You forgot that Rita’s Italian Ice just opened for the season

Logical Thought: “It’s a weekend, there shouldn’t be any traffic”

Frederick Traffic Reality: It’s the first weekend in March. We hope you brought a book 😉

 

3. The Great Frederick Fair is in town

“I’ll be there in 15 minutes”

*drives near fairgrounds*

“I’ll be there in 2 hours”

 

4. There’s another charity 5K/running festival

There’s nothing like spending Saturday morning behind a blockade. We LOVE charity runs, but, we have brunch plans…so….could you guys hurry up?

 

5. You just had to stop and wave at the Hot Air Balloon

Or…you know… change the route entirely to see if you can watch it land.

 

6. There’s a cow…in the road

Yep. Nothin’ like a good ol’ fashioned cow in the road.

 

6.5 Every road that leads anywhere is under construction

“Didn’t you read all of the signs that were up for like…an entire year before the project started?”

“Nope.”

Scythian at the Weinberg

 

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!

You can purchase your tickets online, by calling 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 W. Patrick St. in Downtown Frederick. Be sure to show your school ID or military ID for a discount! Discounts are also available for children and seniors.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door.
