Event

Christmas with the Gothard Sisters - 2nd Saturday Community Concert
"On Fire!"  Celtic Radio
"Blew our socks off!"  Missoula Celtic Festival
"Superb Show!" - Auburn Ave Theater

    The Gothard Sisters are three sisters who love to play, record and perform music that is timeless, uplifting and energetic.  This music has taken them across thousands of miles, playing for crowds of people of every age and in many different walks of life.  Over the course of nearly 1,000 shows since they formed as a Celtic band in 2006, the Gothard Sisters  who are truly sisters  have become internationally recognized as multi-instrumentalist Celtic-influenced folk musicians, songwriters, and performers from the Pacific Northwest, USA.  

    Regularly performing more than 120 shows a year, the Gothard Sisters have built a loyal following by connecting with audiences in a lively, entertaining and touching way.  In 2013, the Irish Music Awards presented the Gothard Sisters with Best New Irish Artist, and they were awarded with Album of the Year for Celtic Radio in 2011 for their album Story Girl.  In addition to their musical endeavors, each of the sisters are highly trained in competitive Irish dance, bringing the heart-pounding rhythms of Ireland to their live shows for a dynamic surprise to keep the audience at the edge of their seats.

    Summer 2015 will see the release of The Gothard Sisters' long-awaited 3rd original album, Mountain Rose.  Mountain Rose was "inspired by the love of simple, timeless and transcendent things - patience, courage, community, the beauty and adventure of nature, and most of all the feeling of comfort in being with those you love as the sun sets on Summer nights."
The musical album features fresh, inventive and melodic violin lines, the rhythmic drive of bodhran, percussion, Irish step dance and guitar, and three-part vocal sibling harmony.  There are brand new originals on this album - "It Was Beautiful," was written by Greta Gothard about seeing appreciating simple things, "Grace O'Malley" is a story-song about a 9-year-old girl with a lot of gumption, and "The Boatman's Call" tells a simple love story that takes place across a rushing river.  
The album also features new arrangements of traditional song, like the beautiful Welsh lullaby, "All Through the Night," Scottish anthem "Auld Lang Syne" (played with a youthful 2015 twist), covers of Andy M. Stewart's "Queen of Argyll" and Kate Rusby's "I Courted a Sailor" and the fiddle standard "St. Anne's Reel."
Of course no Gothard Sisters production is complete without several songs where the violin (or fiddle!) shines as well - energetic and spunky original tune sets like "The Bandit," written about a dancing raccoon in the woods, "Cat in a Bush," lovingly dedicated to the silly cat that keeps squashing the lavender bush in the front yard, "Mountain Rose Waltz," which evokes a lovely evening community dance, and "Chaos in La Casa," a gypsy-tinged dance jig that was written about the enjoyable chaos that occurs while in a home full of kids.  The album will be released worldwide on June 23rd.
