SYR (sire) is a Celtic Folk-Rock band hailing from Columbia, SC. What started as a small traditional cover band has evolved into a band with a unique blend of genres.

Taking inspiration from Celtic history and myth, SYR creates original songs with themes like battle, love, loss, and a large pint.

SYR also plays everything from Irish & Scottish drinking songs, to sea shanties and ballads in Gaelic, even taking modern songs and adding a Celtic twist to create an interesting blend of old and new.

Tartan Day South Celtic Festival, West Columbia, SC - “Syr has been an outstanding asset for Tartan Day South.They play beautifully, and entertain with passion. Our goal at TDS is to maximize fun experiences for our patrons. Syr gets the crowd singing their hearts out. The group embodies our objective of unbridled fun!!” - John Banks, Coordinator of Tartan Day South.

SYR has a great blend of Celtic and rock, giving them a very unique sound. SYR is on the rise, and on their way to big things." - Don Russo, Owner/CEO, Freeway Music.

Comments: From their humble beginnings as a cover band, to developing their unique blend of genres, SYR set out to gather inspiration from Celtic Folk, Irish drinking songs, Scottish folk numbers and Gaelic Ballads, blending these timeless genres with a contemporary twist coming in the form of their rock music background. On their recent self-titled album, the band alternates personal lyricism to storytelling inspired by Celtic Myths and old folk tales, going for a very personal and relatable approach.Hailing from Columbia, SC, the combo blends in different sounds and ideas, from guitar-oriented numbers to the beautiful colors of the fiddle leads. The band consists of brothers Jacob and Josh McCleery (drums and guitar), Emily Bracey (fiddle), Timothy Strevens (bass), and siblings, Kyle and Laurel MacCallum, (lead guitar/vocals and backup vocals)...Review on The SYR Debut AlbumRead the Full Review
