The Gothard Sisters

Fierce, fast fiddling and a splash of lively step dancing are only a couple of reasons The Gothard Sisters will make you wish you were Irish!

Greta, Willow and Solana Gothard began classical violin training and competitive Irish dancing at a young age leading them to leadership positions in the local Youth Symphonies and to the Irish dancing World Championships where they competed in the solo category three years in a row. In 2007, the sisters were on a Seattle-based Irish dance team that placed second at the World Championships in Scotland. The Gothard Sisters have also developed additional talents on guitar, bodhran and voice and their love for music, dance and storytelling is their inspiration for performing and recording.  Having recorded six CDs, their most recent Story Girl album won the 2011 Celtic Radio’s Album of the Year.

The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic all-female Irish music and dance group from the Pacific Northwest of the United States.  The three girls (who are truly sisters!) perform and record new Celtic arrangements of well-know traditional tunes and songs, as well as their own original compositions on their six recorded studio albums.  Their most recent recording, “Story Girl,” was awarded “Album of the Year” by Celtic Radio.>>Read More
