From The Gothard Sisters
"...three amazingly talented sisters..." - Lonely Planet "...talented in so many ways it fairly boggles the brain." - CelticRadio.net The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic all-female Irish music and dance group from the Pacific Northwest, USA. The three girls (who are truly sisters!) perform and record new Celtic arrangements of well-known traditional tunes and popular songs, as well as their own original compositions from their 6 recorded studio albums. As champion Irish dancers who have competed overseas multiple times at the World Championships, they include the visual elements and the exciting rhythms of Irish step dancing into tightly choreographed, high-energy variety shows. The signature sound of the Gothard Sisters’ recording (their new album Story Girl was awarded Album of the Year 2011 by Celtic Radio) blends the freedom and lyricism of traditional folk forms with the discipline gained from years of training as classical musicians and the world of Irish dance.
