The Celtic rock, Americana bluegrass band Scythian will headline the Lucknow Music Festival on March 11 in downtonw Dunn.
DUNN — Organizers of the Lucknow Music Festival announced Thursday the headline entertainer for the 2023 Festival. Scythian, playing roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian tradition, is known for thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience, reported a release.
Organized by the Downtown Dunn Development Corporation, the Lucknow Music Festival will be held March 11 from 1 to 9 p.m. in downtown Dunn. The event will feature nine bands on two stages.
“We are excited to welcome Scythian to the Lucknow Music Festival this year,” said Jacob Godwin, festival organizer and DDDC member. “Scythian has a large following in North Carolina and I can’t wait to see the energy they will bring to Downtown Dunn.”
Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is “what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling,” and the Washington Post claims “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” 
The foursome made up of Alexander Fedoryka (vocals, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica), Danylo Fedoryka (vocals, guitar, accordion), Ethan Dean (vocals, upright and electric bass, percussion, guitar) and Johnny Rees (vocals, drums, percussion) brings various influences together to create a conglomerate that is steeped in various folk traditions.
The classically trained Fedoryka brothers grew up on Ukrainian folk music and bluegrass, while Ethan Dean was raised on the greats of ’60s and ’70s folk-rock. Lafayette, Louisiana-raised Johnny Rees brings a Cajun backbeat to the Celtic-Americana fusion giving Scythian yet another dimension that keeps audiences entertained and moving. 
Scythian is coming off its most prolific year in 2020 with over 1,000 hours of live streams during the COVID lockdowns, release of two new albums (“Roots & Stones” and “Quaranstream: The Album”) and four new music videos. 
The event will take place in downtown Dunn’s commercial district spanning from U.S. Highway 421 to East Edgerton Street and from U.S. Highway 301 to Railroad Avenue. 
The band lineup also includes: Fleming Road Band, Downpour, Carley Arrowood, Michael Daughtry Band, Feral Cats Band, Jam Biscuit, Drybones Revival and Wesley Nóog.
