Marching towards a musically victory of some of the most energetic live recordings we have heard to date, Scythian's Live Volume 1 is a masterpiece of fiddling, drums, guitars and vocals. You just might fold your arms, jump on top of the kitchen table and start kicking the dishes off as you dance to some of their incredible eastern European sounding tracks like Chava Nagila or the slow building "Gypsy Fiddle" that erupts into an explosion of phenomenal dance jigs that would bring down the house anywhere. Scythian has achieved, through their talents, what few bands can claim, a Live album that sounds just as good, if not better, then their studio version.
A big round of applause and congratulations to Scythian for a Live album that sounds beautiful and captures the character and intensity of a group of extraordinary musicians that are giving the people a reason to dance and look for better days ahead. We can only hope that Volume 2 will be coming out very shortly! 5 Golden Celtic Radio stars for Scythian 's remarkable Live album - we can promise you will want to see this group play in concert after hearing this album!

I just saw Scythian preform at the North Texas Irish Festival this past weekend (NTIF in Dallas TX is always the first full weekend in March for those who may be interested, and itís a great festival to attend!). I first came across their music when I heard their song Hey Mama Ya on Highlander Radio years ago. Itís a catchy tune with a little Celtic mixed with a little Zydeco and a whole lot of fun. When I saw their name on the performers list at NTIF, I made sure to check them out. They are a high energy band with a great sound and infectious personality. They play an eclectic mix of music with a strong bent towards the Celtic genera. I hope they are able to come back again next year. I thoroughly enjoyed their performances!
Itís a real pleasure to be able to listen to artists like Scythain, Ed Miller, Dervish and many many others on the Celtic Radio stations then be able to see them preform live. Keep up the good work! SlŠinte
