Their grasp of style and presentation is big league, even when playing in more intimate settings. This is a trio that comes off like an orchestra. - Celtic Beat Magazine
These women are talented, beautiful, conscientious purveyors of beautifully crafted Irish music. - Victory Music Magazine
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! - Keith Doherty, Lannadoo Festival
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 what Irish Central calls an 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 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 March 2015, their music video covering the old English ballad, Scarborough Fair, reached over 1 million views on youtube.
