Syr plays Tartan Day 2016

If you haven’t seen the photos from Tartan Day 2016, you may not know what an awesome time THAT was.  Columbia, SC continues to be the hot spot for festivals and music/cultural events in the Southeast US.   One of Columbia’s own local bands is nearing that tipping point where a band springs from its humble roots into the stratosphere of stardom.   That band is Syr, a Celtic Folk Rock band with melodic harmonies led by front man Kyle MacCallum and his sister Laurel, backed up instrumentally by Timothy Strevens, Emily Bracey, Jacob McCleery, and Kelly Huff.

The photos I captured are of their performance at Tartan Day, as well as the spontaneous jam session that occurred when they were invited to take the stage with nationally known Tuatha Dea.

Tartan Day South 2016!

Columbia Historic Speedway hosts one of the best Celtic Festivals annually, in what has become a family oriented tradition for many families across the Southeast, including my own.  This year, Alchemist Imaging was pleased to be a part of the action in an official capacity, as we were invited to be the official providers of photography for the even on Saturday this past weekend.

Big thanks to John Banks and all the vendors and the participants and bands who made the Tartan Day South 2016 festival a huge success!

So without further adieu, enjoy the photos, and put it on your calendars for next year!
