Rathkeltair and Syr at Celtic Commotion

Last Friday night I stumbled on a wonderful concert under the stars at the base of the Gervais/Meeting St. Bridge on the West Bank of the Congaree River which divides Columbia and West Columbia...It was called the Celtic Commotion and it was a prelude to their concert on the following day at the Columbia Speedway called Tartan Day South...There were 3 or 4 bands there but I arrived a little late and missed one...God bless them...they were selling pints of Guiness and Harp draft beer in the parking lot...So for the price of two Guinesses...I got to see and hear some wonderful Celtic (Rock) music...And of course I had my trusty cell phone with me and recorded some of their songs and images...

The first group is called "Syr"...and they were not on the main stage but up where I was sitting so I was very close to them as they performed...

 This group is called Rathkeltair...and they are an international band and have played worldwide...Give them both a listen...
