Announcing a new Meetup for The Baltimore Live Music Meetup Group!
What: Scythian @ Mick O'Shea's
When: October 30,[masked]:00 PM
328 N Charles St
Baltimore, MD 21201
Rousing and raucous, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays kicked-up Celtic and world music with hints of Gypsy and Klezmer, all infused with a touch of punk-rock sensibility. Take a pair of classically trained dueling fiddlers, toss in a rhythm guitar and the occasional funky accordion, then power it with the driving rhythm of a jazz percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget. Their high-energy, adrenaline-peddling, interactive brand of music has one goal in mind; to get people on their feet and dancing. Their repertoire ranges from traditional and contemporary Celtic and folk music to the alluring and dramatic strains of Gypsy and Eastern European tunes, and then crosses back over the border to pick up some good old-fashioned bluegrass licks.
Friday, Oct. 30
Show starts at 10:00 pm but you must get there early because from my experience, these guys PACK the house.

Here is what I am saying:
I've seen these guys twice and they are phenomenal. Their show is a Guinness-fueled, sing and dance along cardio workout.
Here is a live clip of Scythian. The audio isn't good, but it gives you a feel for their energy.
