Washington, DC based Celtic Rock Scythian brings their very popular brand of high-energy Irish music to Grand Haven in what Al, our sound technician calls “the loudest show yet at the museum”. This show, which we are bringing to Tri-Cities Historical Museum as a pre-St. Patrick’s day bash, will certainly be one of the liveliest shows we have ever organized, with the Washington Post stating that “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, & shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” They have been crowd favorites headlining the Michigan Irish Music Festival in Muskegon multiple times. Scythian states that their music has been “a search and love for the old time, good time music of many cultures.” They highlight the most eclectic lineup we have put together for the 3rd season & feel this will be a celebration from start to finish which will leave people stomping their feet long after the show has ended with their upbeat music, fiddling contagious energy.
One of the goals of Music at the Museum is to showcase the best regional music around. Watching for Foxes is deserving of being included in this talent-heavy lineup & is one of our favorite bands from West Michigan. Grand Rapids-based Watching for Foxes will bring their infectious folk rock & harmonies to Tri-Cities Historical Museum in support of Scythian on March 2. Calling themselves “Cinematic Folk Rock”, Watching for Foxes has been praised local media, including Local Spins’ John Sinkevics – “Few bands can replicate the lugubrious beauty of folk-rock’s Watching for Foxes. The mournful -yet-somehow-sanguine tracks constructed by frontman Joey Frendo and his Grand Rapids ensemble build to dynamic, emotion-infused crescendos marked by moody sound effects, gorgeous harmonies and rich, diverse instrumentation.”
