The Gothard Sisters present their second Portland-area Christmas concert full of Celtic music, dance and fun for the whole family! Celebrate a magical Celtic Christmas with the Gothard Sisters, winners of Best New Irish Artist in the Sixth Annual Irish Music Awards.
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 performersfrom the Pacific Northwest, USA.
Beginning their career by playing for tips at the local farmers market, now the sisters regularly perform more than 120 shows a year nationally and internationally. Their special brand of Celtic-inspired original music pays respect to the older traditions of folk and classical music, while reintroducing them to a modern audience through beautiful new arrangements. Although much of the sisters inspiration comes with a distinct Celtic flair, hints of their western American heritage can be heard in whatIrish Centralcallsan earthiness that gives the songs a lively, approachable, down-home sound.In addition to their musical endeavors, each of the sisters are highly trained in competitive Irish dance, bringing the exciting rhythms of Ireland to their live shows through dance, music, song, and storytelling.
Over the last nine years the band has built a loyal following, independent of any music label, by connecting with audiences in a lively, entertaining and touching way and by insisting on a DIY approach in everything they do - self producing their award-winning albums, energetic live shows and imaginative music videos. In 2013, the Irish Music Awards presented the Gothard Sisters withBest New Irish Artist, and they were awarded withAlbum of the Yearfor Celtic Radio in 2011 for their album Story Girl. In March 2015, their music video covering the old English ballad, Scarborough Fair, reached over 1 million views on youtube.
Their on-stage charisma, energy, enthusiasm and extraordinary talent is second to none. They have a unique talent of being able to captivate their audience for the entirety of their show, leaving spectators wanting more. Furthermore, the Gothard Sisters' eclectic style and theatrical performance is something that will continue to flourish as these artists will no doubt take the World by storm. A must-see!
