A Celtic New Year Celebration with the Gothard Sisters

The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic musical group of three sisters who play contemporary Celtic music. Through 10 years performing, touring and writing music together, the optimistic style of their music and performances continue to resonate with their fans, building a loyal international following.

Their latest all-original album release, Midnight Sun, reached #6 on the Billboard World Music charts as the highest ranking debut on the chart, and the Gothard Sisters have performed in venues large and small all over the country, including a concert at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium stage in Washington DC, performances with Disney Cruise line in Europe, music festivals and performing arts venues nationwide.

Blending Celtic, folk, classical, world and northwest musical influences, the Gothard Sisters bring songs to life with violin, acoustic guitar, mandolin, bodhran, djembe, octave violin, whistle and vocal harmonies, creating music that is “vivid, inspirational and captivating.”  (Tim Carroll, Folk Words Review 2018)

Writing and recording near their home in the Pacific Northwest between touring nationally, the band has released 7 albums and has performed over 1,000 live shows over the course of their career.

“[The Gothard Sisters] are no new girls on the block, they are at the top of their game and one of the industry’s best kept secrets to those who’ve never heard them.  It’s all fireworks on this album full of superior songwriting, singing and playing by three professional sisters who know their craft inside out.” 
– Scott Carlito, Indie Band Guru

“[The Gothard Sisters] have perfected their handling of Celtic-influenced contemporary folk… the true magic comes from their ability to craft music both fresh as sunrise and yet drenched in tradition.”  
– Tim Carroll, Folk Words Review

“[The Gothard Sisters’] 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.”

“This is world class string and vocal oriented folk music at its finest… a sublime treat.”
– Larry Toering, Skope Magazine
