The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic supergroup of three American sisters who play contemporary Celtic music. Through over 14 years of 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 album, Dragonfly, features the sisters playing an assortment of acoustic instruments and vocals combined with modern production to create music exploring themes of resilience and adventure. The band’s music is popular among a worldwide audience, and has over 15 million streams on Spotify, with a large social media following and 11.3 million views on youtube.
The Gothard Sisters have performed at performing arts centers, listening rooms, and festivals across the United States, including a show at the Kennedy Center's Millennium stage in Washington DC, concerts with orchestras and symphonies, performances with Disney Cruise line in Europe, outreach appearances in schools across the United States and two tours in Japan with Min-On Global Music Network, performing over 50 shows there in 2019 and 2022.
Blending Celtic, folk, classical, and new age musical influences, the Gothard Sisters bring songs to life with violin, acoustic guitar, mandolin, bodhran, djembe, 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, the band has released 9 albums and has performed over 2,000 live shows over the course of their career.
