Wow - what a performance at Stout this past Saturday! I was visiting a friend of mine in NYC, and she took me to see you guys. Such a fantastic show - lots of great energy!! The bars where I'm from (Texas) close at 2 a.m. so I couldn't imagine I could stay up past then. But I was so wrong! The show was so amazing that we stayed till the bar closed at 4!! Thanks for such a great time. I doubt you guys would ever make it as far south as Houston, but if you do, I'll come to see you!!

I never miss your Philly-area shows and am very much looking forward to the upcoming Brittingham's show. But what is up with the lack of pictures being posted of the Brittingham's shows? Come on, lads, the Philly people want to see themselves on your site as much as the DC people do! And will you serenade us with the Rattlin' Bog this time around? It's been a while.

Eye candy and ear candy on the same night! I was a lucky girl last week. Seriously, the music is fabulous, thank you for a rockin' time, keep it up because i'm going to make it to more of your Thursday night shows.

To be honest, your band was a name among a whole list of bands to chose from during the Milwaukee Irish fest this past summer...and yours jumped out at me b/c I happen to be a fan of nomadic steppe tribes--in a rather indirect sense;)...thus, after subjecting my boyfriend to yet another diabtribe on how awesome and fascinating the horse-lords of the steppe were, we decided to stop by the tent you were playing at've established a following in Chicago (even if we were in Milwaukee instead)...I can't even describe how heart-thumping, foot-stomping, jig-reel-inducing your melodies are...each one of your tunes is like a mini-stroke of celtic-Ectasy...thus, we went to hear you in McGinty's this past week--the couple from Chicago who flew into Raleigh-Durham, and drove up to DC to hear you all play Oct 6th--what a privledge;)...don't worry, we're not stalkers, we just really loved your music;)...I hope you guys keep spinning the truly wonderful sounds you've managed to create--bardic in the truest sense of the art, and so fresh...and i absolutely hope you all never loose the grass-roots-i-ness of what you do, no matter how big you get;)...I will light candles to your patron saint of fiddles and scythians in the hope you'll come to chicago in the not so distant future...I'm not sure, with all the irish bars out here, how they could not have heard your rhythms blowing in from the east coast;)...Cheers and much luck to getting more people off their booties and dancing!!;) We hope to see you all again in action!!

Saw you at the Santana concert at the Nissan Pavilion. I wish I'd known about you guys earlier. As a dabbler in int'l folk and Irish music, I have to say that you guys are fantastic. Unfortunately we just left the DC area and are relocating to Cork, Ireland. We'll keep an eye on your tour dates to see when Cork comes up!
Josh from Alexandria, Virginia

September 29, 2006

Wow! All of you performed wonderfully! As I sat under the gazebo in the VIP lounge at Nissan, I really enjoyed how your music connected with your audience (which you drew quite a few admirers, including myself). I love to listen to music from all different cultures of the world blended to make one unique sound especially one you can dance too! Danylo, I took pleasure in watching you play the accordeion because my grandfather used to play in a Panamian folklore group. Loved it! Thanks, guys! Your doing an awesome job! Love to see you here in Warrenton, VA.
Mary from Warrenton, Virginia

September 27, 2006

You guys were awesome at the Santana concert! You're something like a Old Blind Dogs (one of my favorite bands) with an American flavor. I was sorry I didn't bring my trebles because you made me want to dance!
Elysia from Manassas, Virginia
September 27, 2006

I saw you guys for the first time last night at the VIP lounge at Nissan for the Santana concert and I was blown away. Your perfomance was the highlight of my night and I enjoyed you moreso than Santana himself. Awesome job guys, you have really developed an eclectic and unique vibe.
Stacy from Charlottesville, Virginia

Once again, you made our weekend - you guys sure know how to make thirty-somethings feel twenty again! We always look forward to our Scythian weeekends at Brittingham's - you NEVER dissapoint. Yes, we know that you were there one night only; it just takes us the rest of the weekend for us to recover from all the food, drink, and dancing. No regrets! Thank you giving your all every time we see you! P.S. - Keep thinking about that 2 year thing - w/ or w/out instruments; it would be an honor to share another good time with you all.

Mary from Thorndale, Pennsylvania

Just so you are aware- my little Mary wouldn't listen to any CD other than yours during our trip back to NC. Such energetic tunes and warm,fond memories made those 22 hours just fly right by.

September 6, 2006

You guys rock, HARD! Some friends and I saw you at the Minnesota Irish Fair in August '06, and it's safe to say you have a new and very exhuberant group of fans! PLEASE, come to Irish Fair in Minnesota again next year; we need your kind of energy! Also, if you are in the midwest sometime and want to play an off the hook college set, look them up at Luther College; you guys would tear the place up!
Wade from Decorah, Iowa
August 29, 2006

Just so you guys know... the kids in Ukraine love your music. I'm now a Peace Corps volunteer here and sharing both some Irish music and dance with my students. Can't wait to see you play again when I get home next June!

If you and "Flogging Molly" were to be pitted together in a deathmatch, you could win the trophy without breaking a sweat. I love your music. Keep it up, lads!

You guys just get better every time we see you! Hubby and I saw two of your shows at the Celtic Fling last Saturday and were again totally blown away by your talent and energy! We've seen you guys play at Brittingham's before and loved you so much, we've been playing your cd in our house pretty regularly. Needless to say, you've become a family favorite and even our 9 year old daughter was psyched to see you at the Fling. She's already asking when she gets to go to another Scythian concert! Thanks again for making our weekend!
The Lane Family from Boyertown, Pennsylvania
July 1, 2006

Saw you @ the Celtic Fling, Sat. 6/25. You were GREAT!!!! Very disappointed to hear you will not be @ Celtic Music Fest. My 14 yr. old grandson & 8 yr. old grandaughter loved your music. Got the grandson a t-shirt and CD. My grandson informed me that he went to a Nickelback concert and you were far and away much better!!! They are taking their shirt, CD & stickers back to FL. the end of July and will spread the word about you. We hope to see you again when you are near PA.

We finally got a band on the Swashbuckler Stage that we can listen to in the shop all day long! (We're right next door, so we hear it all.) You guys were a pleasure to listen to- keep up the hard work, and please come back and see us at Faire again soon!

My daughter and I went to the Pa Celtic Fling last weekend expecting to have a good time. Well we had a great time. We were standing at the pub for your first set on Sat. Went over and sat down and immediately was up on our feet clapping and dancing. We hit all your shows that day but the best was the concert at the end of the night when you all where jamming what a party. We could only stay for 1 of your sets on Sunday but we weren't going to miss it. We bought both CD's and you guys sign them. Thanks. What a great time. We'll be seeing you in Wildwood, NJ. A new fan
Barb from Verga, New Jersey

Joe from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
June 27, 2006

Saw you perform at CELTIC FLING this past wknd. You guys blew me away! after the first set saturday, i spent the rest of the day telling my friends "You'v GOT to catch these guys!". You've definitely jumped onto my top 5 list. Hoping to catch you again soon.

My husband and I saw your group at the Celtic Festival in PA. You guys ROCK! We saw 3 of your shows on Sunday, and a few other ones. I thought is was totally AWESOME when the other band joined you all on stage :-)! The violin blew our minds! Keep up the GREAT work and pray you all make it larger than life!
Gail from York, Pennsylvania

Mike from Elkton, Maryland
June 26, 2006

I just got home from the Celtic Fling no more than 10 minutes ago and couldn't wait to log on to your site. You guys were awesome this weekend! You have so much talent, and it was evident that you enjoy the time you spend on stage. I hope you continue to perform at the Celtic Fling because you can be sure you'll have people coming just to see YOU.

We just had our first close encounter with Scythian at the Celtic Fling and Highland Games in Cornwall, PA. Can't say enough good things about you. We thoroughly enjoyed your shows and can't wait for the next chance to experience the talent, energy and full-on fun that is Scythian.
Jeana from Frederick, Maryland
June 25, 2006

We saw two of your performances at the Celtic Fling and loved your music! You guys are on your way to big things, your talent is incredible and your stage presence is mesmerizing! You were the best band there!! We look forward to seeing you perform again!
Tammy and Jim from Wrightsville, Pennsylvania
June 25, 2006

The fun and energy you provided at the Celtic Fling in Cornwall, was spectacular!!! I think the thing that amazing me the most, is seeing the smiles and happiness you provide to everyone at every show. That definitely is the meaning of word success!!! I can't wait to see you in August at the Midwest Celtic Festivals. Keep smiling and having fun,for new friends will always appear every time I see you.
Pamela from Berwyn, Pennsylvania
June 25, 2006

WOW! Your show at nottoway was AWESOME!!! We loved the variety and all the kids dancing, and how lively it was. you guys are very talented. good luck--well try to see you again!
Emily from Herndon, Virginia
June 22, 2006

Saw you guys for the first time at the Potomac Celtic Festival. I had a large group (all ages)that come in for the festival and they LOVED every minute of your show. We had to get up and get close to the stage. We all also purchased your cds, loved them and listen to them in the car. My sisters want to come back and see you in the club. I was glad they put the best band on first at the festival. Hope you come back next year. You guys are GREAT!!
Leigh from Leesburg, Virginia
June 22, 2006

Fellas, I gotta say… the show was SPECTACULAR! I have honestly never danced so much in my life, and the fact that I could barely walk for three days afterward was totally worth it! The Celtic Festival was the perfect beginning to my summer, and it was all the more amazing because of you. I must admit I was a little skeptical about how much I’d like your performance after hearing your clips online, but they simply don’t do justice to your on-stage energy. I can see why you got more audience response than the Prodigals; you really connect with your audience, even to the point of dancing with them! (Remember the gal in the green shirt, Dan?). Thank you all so much for the pictures and the great show!
Haley from McLean, Virginia
June 21, 2006

My goodness. I have never felt so terrible. With swollen hands and exhaustion, memories of your performance at the Potomac Celtic Festival were the only thing to assuage my miserbale state. Your music is amazing, never have i heard so much interpretation from the fiddle! Your interpretation of 'Wild Thing' is certianly something that i would never expect from a celtic-based group. I dragged my friends and family to the festival, and now they are in celtic euphoria thanks to you. I have never danced or clapped so much in one night in my entire life, and I have you and your inspiring music to thank for it. You were very kind to pose with my friends and I for a photo, we appreciate your congenialtiy. The 'all ages events' are tantalizing for young fiddlers such as myself, please keep up the festivals, and thank you for an amazing show! P.S. I thought you were better than the Prodigals.
Paula from Great Falls, Virginia
June 18, 2006

I was able to catch one of your gigs a couple of Thursdays ago at Fado while in DC for a flying visit. Best $5 cover I ever spent. Keep up the great work.
Mark from Thousand Oaks, California
June 18, 2006

Hey Guys! Just wanted to say thank you so much for your music. Andrew had such a ball when you let him get up on stage with you guys, and I know it was a dream come true for him as well as all of the other kids, whose lives you made such an impact in. There are so many smiles that the pictures I took could never capture, and I thank you for the love you showed each one of those kids. Keep playing and sharing your gift of music to the world. God blessed you guys with amazing talent! Hope to see you at a show sometime, you gotta come visit New Hampshire :-) Be Blessed! ~Amanda
Amanda from Mont Vernon, New Hampshire
June 15, 2006

Hooray, you finally came back to Philly at Brittingham's. Brought new friends/fans to see your show, and we all had a dancing great time. See you soon at the Celtic Fling.

June 11, 2006

Hey Guys! Thanks for making Kenny and Amy's wedding so much fun! All of us really enjoyed your music and I am just hoping you'll find a way to travel to Louisville, KY for a fun time. We Louisvillians love Irish drinking music! Good luck with your band, and I hope to see you live soon! Amy Quinlan

May 28, 2006

So guys....I have a question. When might you have a new album coming out? Just curious. I honestly think a live album would be awesome because studio recordings sometimes just don't do justice to the talent you all have.
Carrie from McLean, Virginia
May 26, 2006

Got to yer site from the The Fuchsia Band ( who'll be playing in the Minnesota Irish Fair with ye. Great bunch o' lads with a fantastic sound and incredible front man. Great site and sounds.

Scythian!!! I recently came home for the Summer and I miss Thursdays at Fado already!!!! I found myself getting very thirsty early on in the day and I had an extreme desire to break out into a jig; It was very difficult not having my weekly dose of Celtic Rock served up with pure energy and enthusiasm to pick me up!!! Seriously, guys...keep on putting on amazing shows and maybe you could head up to the Albany, NY area...~Libby (A regular at Fado and Scythian Fan from Catholic)
Libby from Rensselaer, New York

Hey Mikey-O! Don't forget your homies from back home! I miss you! The tracks you guys have online ROCK! I can't wait to come see you- live in Cleveland, perhaps? I'm adding my email to your list- shoot me a line if you get a minute- I miss you very much!
Michelle from Cleveland, Ohio
May 15, 2006

Dear Scythian, I first heard you at the Naval Academy last November. I love my Irish heritage and was ecstatic to find out you were going to be in town for my birthday at Mick OSheas. My birthday was a rough one this year (lost a family member) but you and my friends made it a memorable one - Thank you, Erin
Erin from Baltimore, Maryland
May 14, 2006

Where or where is Scythian? We miss you in Pennsylvania, for the May Kildare shows were cancelled. :( Dan wishes for a speedy recovery for a June show at Brittingham's is just around the corner. The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. -Ashley Montagu So hurry back to Pennsylvania soon.
Pamela from Berwyn, Pennsylvania
May 13, 2006

Oh great foaming pint in the sky, would that I were not down in Ecuador for two years of Peace Corps service but back among the blessed oaken arms of Fado in DC, where each and every Thursday flowers bloom and angels fart and the best live music this side of the other side be played by four of the fun-lovingest gentlemen that ever did walk the earth. I miss you guys. Play on, little men, play on.
Benito from The Equator, D.C.
May 11, 2006

Saw my first Scythian show...Sober that is, and your still awesome sober. My Bro on the other hand puked up Shepard's Pie, thankfully not in my car. Poor boy's first show, he didn't know what he was getting himself into - see you at Brits in June.
Danny from West Chester/Newtown Square, Pennsylvania
May 2, 2006

As always you guys are a lot of FUN!!!! We saw you once again at Brittingham's and as always danced our hearts out. We can't wait to see you in June. Thanks guys
Jamie from Ardsley, Pennsylvania
May 1, 2006

Saw you last night at Brittingham's Pub. Fantastic!!!I enjoyed the extra accordian number. My only disappointment to the evening was arriving to late and missing your 1st set, but was able to purchase one of those fashionable shirts. There is only one success, to spend your life in your own way. -Christopher Morley

Lads, Awesome opening show at McGinty's last Saturday. I was the guy who asked for the "Mohican Theme" and then danced like a fool to it, of course - still can't believe you covered that one - incredible! Thanks for the great music and, from what I remember, the carbombs weren't bad either! See you at the next...
Scott from Laurel, Maryland
April 6, 2006

Laddies, Congrats on your McGinty's grand opening gigs! The energy was ecstaticly intoxicating or intoxicatingly exstatic or intaxtically entixated, well you get the idea, but it was a pleasure to experience. Also Happy One Year to your FANTASTIC Drummer Mikey...way to move us with your rockin nuances!!! Finally, would you please let poor Steve get some rest!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;l

Ah, lads, just looking at your summer lineup gives me the goosebumps - all those outdoor venues! - I can hardly wait. You've already established yourselves as a tambourine-banging rowdy bar band without rival, but this summer you'll show us that you're a dance-barefoot-under-the-tilting-stars band, too. See you there -- I'll be the one with the bells on her ankles and the flowers in her hair. :)

"I survived St. Paddy's Day with Scythian"...can we get some t-shirts made up, please???? St. Paddy's Day = fun St. Paddy's Day in NYC = lots o' fun St. Paddy's Day in NYC @Stout, on a Friday, with Scythian, playing from 5pm till after midnight = One tough Saturday!! I honestly can't remember having that much fun, for so many hours, and can still remember just about everything that happened...well, er, let me take that back, I think I remember. What I will always remember, and hope to tell my grandkids one day, is that I had the best St. Patricks Day of my life in 2006...with great friends, great beer, and one great band whose performance got me dancing while the sun was still shining! See you in April!

Boys, you are, yet again, the epitome of all that is fun and kind. I had a blast this past weekend, and even came home with a little sunburn(the nickname Red starts to make more sense at a time like this). I hope you guys get some rest before this weekend. St. Paddy's day will not be the same without you. But alas Montreal is calling our names, and we must paint the town red.

Fedoryka's and Mr. Crosby (as well as your new drummer, Mike), Thank you for giving some life to Franciscan Alumni. Sometimes I wonder if anyone does anything other than DRE, Catholic Schools, or Diocesan Work. You are salt for "the hill"! God bless your endeavors and come to Texas!!! There are some that are Irish down here... and if not, they need to be cultured! In love with the Lamb, Wendy

300 friends, a mansion in Philly, the thrilling mystery of a masquerade ball, live music and dancing wildly in formal attire until the wee hours of the new year... Sounds like the best possible way to ring in 2006. This is the kind of party it would be a nothing short of a tragedy to miss: a no-holds-barred, "Did I really do that?!?"/"Oh yes, yes you did...", leave-your-inhibitions-at-the-door and your-sorrows-out-in-the-street-somewhere, shimmy-like-your-life-depends-on-it, just have a *riiiidiculous* good time party. Only you, lads - only you. May Philadelphia talk about it for YEARS to come.

It was one of the best concert experiences I've ever had--and certainly the best Irish concert.

The jam session with Blackthorn on Sunday night at Irish Weekend in North Wildwood, NJ was one of the greatest I have ever heard. I wish there was video or audio of it somewhere. It was improvisation at its finest. The two bands were genuinely having a great time on stage.

After seeing you all at Fado on July 28th my friend Kelly lent me your CD. That weekend, as I was pulling into a parking spot in Red Bank, NJ with the windows down and the CD on, this guy who was getting into his car was like, "Who is that?!" so I told him and he said, "Man, that's some really good fiddle!" I told him the website and he said he'd check it out. Hope to see you at Fado again soon!

...And thus ends another night at Finnigan's Wake, in madness, as usual. (I owe Joe 2 phone calls already!) Anyway, it's 5AM, still here dealing with the craziness. If there ever was an Irish Studio 54, it would be Finnigan's, and yet again you guys have ensured people will be saying forever: "Yeah, I remember that night...Scythian was playing and (fill in their own blanks)!" For "summer in the city" - a city an hour away from the Jersey shore, you guys, as usual, blew the roof off the place. We've had The Violent Femmes, Cranberries, Thin Lizzy, Ian Hunter/Mott the Hoople, Joan Jett..etc. grace our stages, and you guys are as talented if not more than a lot of them. And on top of that, you're actually GOOD guys. Gotta love that. Anyway, it's only 5am - you may yet still see me 2nite~! Thanks again for being part of "what we do!" -Jimmy GM Finnigan's Wake, Philadelphia

My friend and I fought the torrential downpour and treacherous lightening storm to see you guys open for Live8 this past weekend - such a different atmosphere, playing in a museum! You really got some of those more stoic individuals to groove, congrats! Another great night - can't wait to see you guys in Mick's!

Hi Guys! I was the ridiculous birthday girl on 6/25 who managed to get on stage and made funny gestures to one of your songs and won a free beer- can't remember the title, no suprise!

Words cannot begin to express how beautiful the Scythian vibe is. Alex, and especially Megan, thanks for the 'craic' last Thurs. (6/11) at Finn McCool's. It was a very welcoming exprience, and the music? Blew me away, I danced all night! Thanks for sharing your gifts. Light/Love & Laughter

Carter introduced me to your band, and then I promptly fell in love with your music. I play the violin and have more than a fond appreciation for the beauty in your music. I can't wait until my CDs get here. And, if I might put in a small request--could you perhaps plan a tour out to the West coast area, in, shall we say, Monterey, California? ANSWER: We're shooting for Cali within the year - we'll keep you posted...

June 13, 2005

Leks, I must say, I should have taken your advice. You warned me about the tambourine and waking up with bruises. Let's just say, you were right. I couldn't quite figure out why my hand hurt but then there was a slow recollection. You guys rocked Finn MacCool's and Fado this weekend. I can't wait to see you again - it's like an addiction but an ooohhhh so good one!!! :)
Carrie from Woodbridge, Virginia
June 12, 2005

Yikes... lads... I gotta say, by now you have some really blackmail-worthy pictures of me up on your site. You're lucky that by now I'm rather fond of public humiliation otherwise you could take me for all I'm worth. *wry grin*

Saw you for the first time at Kildare's in Manayunk last year, and had a great time! Been trying to come back for the last year, but the past 2 times I've showed up at Kildare's in Manayunk, the gig has been changed to West Chester. I've invited friends from out of town and everything. What gives? Who can I yell at? Thanks! ANSWER: Kildares Mgt. - We were scheduled to play Manayunk but were swapped. We were confused too - sorry about that!

Keri from Howell, New Jersey
May 13, 2005

Caught a bit of your performance during this past St Paddy's Day Parade in DC and both my husband and I enjoyed your great sound and energy. I didn't think too much about it again until yesterday when I received the Alumni Newsletter and realized that you went to FUS, too. What a riot! I used to LIVE at Flanny's in a past life and have already booked the babysitter so we can hit your May 20th show. Can't wait!!
Maureen from Annapolis, Maryland
May 13, 2005

YO YO YO!!! I had so much fun the other night at Flannagan's! Thank you so much for such a great show! My friends and I were definately amused! I have to say that I enjoyed the drummer's abs of steel/washboard abs (which just so happened to double as a musical instrument)Lex fyi..only 4 carbombs in a row?? I still am one up on you..let me know when you catch up! haha only kidding! If you all happen to travel to the midwest(doubtful) be sure to drop me a line! Thanks for such a great show!!

April 30, 2005

We were visiting DC and looking for a good spot to drink. I have to say that y'all are the best band that I have seen in quite a while and put on one of the best shows I have ever seen. You MUST come down to Louisiana and play. I've already got a bunch of people addicted to the CD. Thanks for the show. -The boys from Louisiana

Leks, Joey, Danu Paddy's Day at Finn MacCool was extraordinary! The bar has been set, guys. Marine buds of mine heard me talk about you guys for months....then St. Patrick's day happened. I think they were prety blown-away! It was really great to see them being proud of their neighborhood, and having the best Paddy's Day ever; they'll remember that party for a long time. We're all looking forward to the 16th at Finn MC, after the Nats game, of course ! I've said before, and i'll say it again....Hair-raising, perma-grinning, hilarious, tambourine-banging fun.

You guys played a killer show down in B-more. I have never seen you kids before then but I was thoroughly impressed. My feet hurt the next day from dancing so much.

We saw you guys twice while we were in the DC area over the summer - once at Fado's and once at Fran O'Brien's. Two of the best nights of live music I've ever heard. If you're ever truckin' through the midwest, let me know. I'll take you cow-tippin'!

November 2, 2004

Returned to Fado after a few months away (the horror!) to find a pumped crowd and an incredible band. My friends and I - in our late 20s/early 30s - have decided to revisit our youth and follow you guys week to week! I haven't danced, whooped, hollered and played the tambourine at a bar like that since college. Your energy is outrageous, your talent momentous and the vibe you share with the audience is unforgettable. You really added icing to Cake not to mention The Pogues and TMBG. Rock on! Thanks for a great night. (i'm curious what happened to gigs at Finn MacCool's - that's my neighborhood? Too quiet? That's a shame - Hill dwellers would love you all). Take care!

They then also understand why and how the phrase "I bruised myself with the tamborine last night....again" is uttered. Keep on playin'! 'Til next time.

Had a blast. I have seen you several times. Kildares in Manayunk was very good. It seems like you guys enjoyed it very much as well. Plow & the Stars was pretty good as well. My favorite song..The dave matthews tune. Keep rockin ! Keep the faith. Ciao, Pete East Falls, Pa.

You guys were awesome at Kildares. After studying all day only two things could lift my spirit; Smithwicks and some thumpin' Irish music. I can't wait to see you guys at Fado. Thanks for the beer. Saol fada chugat. Sláinte!
Scott from Philly, Pennsylvania
September 14, 2004

You guys rocked Saturday night at Kildare's. I was part of the one bachlorette party that was there. It was my first time hearing irish music and it was a great experience. We couldn't put the tamborines down!!! Thanks for an awesome time.
Kristen from Collegeville, Pennsylvania
September 13, 2004

Well..It kinda sucks that I wont get to see you guys live playing on south street again. Thats where I got my first look at you guys. It was for my birthday, and my friend bought me the CD after hearing two songs by two of your band members. The one I liked the most was Orange Blossem Special. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. Thanks! I love you guys.

Hi to you guys! We really enjoyed the show at Brittingham's. It was the first time we heard a full night's music live from you and we thought the show was varied, lively, funny, touching and full of surprises! Keep it up! Hugs from Meg's cousin Rosie and her mom (Aunt Den)

Hey guys...cheers from a fellow Christendomie in Oregon! Wish you were touring out here...with the exception of Kevin Burke the celt/trad scene is a little anemic in the West. Oh well, keep on keeping on and let us know when the Real World episode is going to air...a lot of us will have to figure out which channel number MTV is...!

We've got to get Scythian upstairs at Finnigans. We're bustin' the seams of that thar basement paradise! I'm starting a phone campaign. I mean IRISH Band in an IRISH Bar belongs front and center. Scythian'll have no problem filling the joint! Anyway, thanks for giving it your all for the Philly fans yet again...and fellow fans, rally to the call! Tell Finnigan's you want a bigger dance floor!!!
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
August 3, 2004

Hey you guys! I saw The Village and only managed to find Dan in the background. He looked like he was having a blast in that dance scene! Somehow I missed Joey and Alex, but I guess I could always see it a second time and try again. I hope you all are well and I will scope out the Richmond scene for you. Take Care and see you soon.
Kathy from Harrisonburg , Virginia

Deirdre from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
August 2, 2004

Hi guys! I saw you play for the first time at Fado's on July 29th. First heard about your band from Tim Clark and other friends who are Christendom alumni. I've heard so much about you that I've been wanting to see you play for a long time now, and finally made it all the way to DC this past week on vacation visiting friends. Even though I was only able to stay for an hour or so I had such a great time, seeing you play was definitely one of the highlights of my vacation. You guys are incredibly talented, even better than I was expecting- and I can't wait for the opportunity to see you play again. Hopefully we can get you to Minnesota sometime! ;)
Katie from Foreston, Minnesota
August 1, 2004

Fellas, great to catch up with your music. I can't wait to get down to DC and catch it in person.

Way to bring the generations together Friday night at Downey's. I love meeting your other fans...and dancing with them! Passing out tambourines is another really cool, unique and engaging touch. Every performance is a grand celebration. I always go home so happy...permagrin for days! Thanks guys!!!
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
July 19, 2004

Hello Scythians, Lisa told me about the pictures taken when you were in Fredericksburg so I had to take a peek. Really enjoyed your music, talents, and also meeting you. Come back to the Olde Towne anytime.

The heart of Scythian relentlessly pulses sound and fury, swelling and threatening to burst its membrane that is the intimate rapport of chamber musicians. Cheers and thanks for the rowdy shows!

Dropped by Finn's on the 3rd for a bite to eat and to catch up on some heart to heart talk with my girl. Instead, we downed numerous black & tans while clapping off beat and shouting lyrcis we didn't really know to some of the best music we have heard in a long time. Thanks, and would love to see you come to Chicago for a midwestern tour!

Saw you guys at FinnMac's on Barracks Row last guys are great! I came by to drop someone off and heard you guys so I came in and stayed as long as I could (which sadly was only about an hour). But, the second I got home I went online and bought your CD. You guys are great! And I agree with Gunny's post, you guys absolutely are "infectious". I've been telling all my friends in CA about you guys and they agree! You rock! See you soon!

Suzanne from Germantown, Maryland
July 6, 2004

Caught your show at Finn's while I was in DC, without a doubt the best bar band (nay, live band) I've ever seen...hope to catch you guys again sometime, will be brushing up on my Irish drinking songs just in case. A superb blend of folk and modern music, good work!
Phil from Cary, North Carolina
July 6, 2004

Wow! Saw you guys at Finn MacCool's on Barracks Row last night.....Creative, infectious, hilarious, tamborine-banging fun. You've now spoiled us for anybody else; a tough act to follow, indeed! Come again, please!

I had a friend visiting from out of town for one day only on Saturday. She had very early travel plans and so did not want to go out... I felt a bad hostess insisting, and didn't want to say...'Okay, see you later' I hung out and waited till she said she was ready to go to sleep and I jumped in a cab to Finnagans wake at 1:15am in the morning!!! HA! I was much dismayed to find another band playing when I walked in and the goofy guys hanging around the bar insisted you'd left...but I intrepidly searched you out!!! Oh joy and smiles. I only caught three songs but you made my night!
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
June 14, 2004

I love dancing, but you were the first IRISH band to get me on the floor and i had such a great time, you guys are awesome, can't wait to see ya again

Hey Lads, Delighted to see you playing at Flanagan's again. You always put on a great show but it just seems way better when you play at Flanagan's. The only problem is I have had to put my doctor on retainer as I have way too much fun and indulge in too many carbombs! See you all soon.

Greetings ye brrrrrrilliant minstrels! I just want to thank you so much for your performance on Thursday, May 27 at Plough in the Stars. It was my first time seeing you play indoors, and in shoes! I was so thrilled that I finally got to dance to your rollicking happystuff outside of my studio. I brought a girlfriend (who returns home to Brasil today)to give her a taste of great Irish music...the first of her lifetime. You made quite an impression. She agreed with me that you're all both talented and perty:) Can't wait till you come around again!
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
June 2, 2004

Hi! I just wanted to tell you guys that you were awesome the other night at Kildare's! My friend and I were tired when we went out and didn't expect any excitement at all, much less to stay past closing. And you got us both dancing, which isn't typical when we don't know anyone else at the bar. We can't wait to see you again!! :)
Kristin from Havertown, Pennsylvania
June 1, 2004

You guys are awesome, I only saw you for a few moments on the street in Phillie, but it rocked. I was the guy dancing on south street, lemme know when you are gonna be down my way in Va.

May 28, 2004

Finally got to fake-jig to your amazing stuff at Plough in the Stars last night. My feet kicked right out from under me and I landed on my tailbone during the very last song...Ow...but I'm still smiling! It was so worth it! My Brazilian girlfriend loved the Irish music and dancing I'd been raving to her about ever since she introduced me to Samba. It was a properly rowdy scene. Hey! It was the first time I'd ever seen the drummers...they were great! Thanks so much to all of you for sharing your energy and talent! Can't wait to catch another performance:)
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

April 23, 2004

My sister and I were on our way to a 5:00pm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul when we happened upon your music at the Northeastern edge of Rittenhouse Square Park. Well, that was that. I hope you are alright with the fact that my soul is in peril due to your masterful picking, bowing and yes...dancing. I was very tempted to join you in the dancing part but felt pretty foolish since everyone else just stood stalk still while you urged. I will make sure I get to see a performance where the crowd is suitably corked and ready to jig whether they have a clue or not. Thanks for playing requests for bits from 'Darby O Gill...' and 'The Red Violin'. Your music is awesome...I keep listening to the CD and sharing it with friends. You're all quite handsome too which doesn't hurt one bit!
Lisa from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
April 20, 2004

You guys ROCKED last night! Scythian was definitely worth the road trip to Philly. We had way too much fun! It was great seeing you guys again and finally getting the chance to hear you play and meet the rest of the band. We can't wait to see you play again.... maybe next time it will be in NY. You guys were AMAZING! :-)
Keri, Angie, Jamie from Albany, New York

You guys have played below my apartment on South Street a few times now (next to Rita's), and I finally wandered down to see who was providing me with such great afternoon entertainment! Keep up the great job guys - I'll catch you at one of your next shows.

Despite my overbooked schedule this weekend, I am so happy that I could manage Joseph and Kathleen's invitation to Sine Saturday night to hear you all! I was the one in the fuschia coat. ;) My only question is: why did I not know about Scythian sooner?! It was a pleasure meeting the band, and hearing at least the first few songs before I had to jet... only wish I could have stayed longer! Cheers! Much love and God bless! Pax tecum, :)

Holy cow, I am a shmuck. These guys played at my husband and my wedding over two months ago and I haven't sat down to write their praises yet. They are amazing. They played pheneomenal instrumental music for a cocktail hour in the sun, then transitioned to stuff that got everyone dancing and partying inside, and rumor has it they showed up at a party with my bridesmaids later that evening. Thank you so much guys and girls, you were the final perfect touch on the best day of my life!

November 3, 2003

what is it about your gigs that each time I go to one I get entirely too drunk off of guiness and jameson's, end up playing the tamborine, dancing all night, and without a doubt always end up falling on my butt at least once or twice throughout the evening??? all of the falling down seems to be worth it because I always have a great time... see you in a few weeks...

I have to say that something was missing from my weekend, not being able to make it to your's been worth the gas money and worth the many trips. The Bal'more volunteers are hoping to get you up here sometime--we're looking for a great pub. Thanks for many a great night!

Hey Guys! Great meeting with you on Saturday night. It was a fun night that could have ended with a good jam session at the bar. (that was my hope, but the bouncers had other plans, right?) We'll definitely come see you soon...great dancin' too.

Your show at Sine's on aug 16th was terrific, and I like your motto "music among friends." That is how it should be. I'm new to the area, but I'm going to try to get a few people from the JPII institute for the show on the 23rd. God bless!

I was introduced to your band by my friends, the Kilners, who had you at their 25th wedding anniversary party. We came to the July 10th show...AMAZING! This may be a first: I sustained bruises to my left hand and a blister on my right from the tamborine--it was well worth the injuries! Haha! Keep up the hard work, you guys put on a great show! I'll be at the next one.

We loved your gig at SINE (7/12)! Quick story: If it weren't for life in Paris, Ro would have never met Dominic. If it weren't for Dominic, we would have never heard your music. So, thank you Paris! (and Dominic!) You guys are AMAZING.

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME- I saw you at the Torpedo Factory (you had sold out of c.d's) about 6 weeks ago. I searched high and low for you on the net. You are so good that a friend called me to say he saw that you were going to be at Flanagan's. I almost left my vacation in Alaska to see you. Keep up the incredible job. Jeff

Man, you guys are incredible! I came to last night's gig at Sine's. I've been to other gigs, but this one was the tops. I think the two girls (your sisters, I heard?) added a lot to the atmosphere of the band. Actually, I think you should get more female members. A female vocalist or two would do wonders. Keep up the great work!!

OK, so how good are you guys? Well . . . I think I'd like to marry one or more of you - if that were legal anyway. How do I get in touch with you to get you booked out here in MD? How do I get in touch with you to . . . well, touch you? Just playin' - saw your show at Flanagan's. You're a crowd pleaser!
