Concert series feature band blends Celtic, gypsy, rock

Named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian (pronounced “sith-eeyin”) fuses Celtic, gypsy, and rock traditions and will get the crowd dancing with their Celtic dervish fiddling at the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series, Thursday, June 30.

Opening act The Wild Reeds, a Los Angeles indie-folk band known for its striking harmonies, starts things off at 6 p.m. on the John Michael Kohler Arts Center Festival Green at the corner of Seventh Street and Wisconsin Avenue.

Scythian performs folk, rock, gypsy, Celtic, Americana, and world music with thunderous energy, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance rock concert experience. Arroe Collins of iHeartRadio writes, “For the past 20 years we’ve relied on hip-hop to get people on the dance floor, when in reality they just haven’t discovered Scythian yet.”

The Washington, D.C.-based band began as buskers (street performers) before developing into a band, winning Washington City Paper’s Best of DC’s ‘Best Local Band’ competition. The band briefly appeared in M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Village. They perform throughout the U.S. and have an Ireland tour coming up this October.

Information about this and other concerts in the series is available at or at the Arts Center (608 New York Ave.).

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs as seating is not provided. Food trucks and a cash bar will be on site. No alcoholic carry-ins allowed.
