The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic all-female Irish music and dance group from the Pacific Northwest, USA. Recently returning from a national US tour, their live show is under large demand as high-energy, family-friendly entertainment steeped in Celtic and folk roots, classical violin chops, champion Irish step-dancing and lots of fun.
The three sisters perform and record new arrangements of well-known traditional songs and tunes, as well as their own original compositions from their recorded studio albums, as heard on their most recent original release, Compass, in Summer 2013.

As champion Irish step dancers who have competed in Ireland and the U.K. multiple times at the World Championships of Irish dance (An Comisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha) in teams, choreographies and solos under the tutelage of Tony Comerford, TCRG, they include the visual elements and the exciting rhythms of Irish step dancing into tightly choreographed, high-energy variety shows.

Not to be overshadowed by their stage show, their recordings and original music are also receiving praise worldwide. The signature sound of the Gothard Sisters’ recording (their album Story Girl was awarded Album of the Year 2011 by Celtic Radio and the group was recently nominated as the Best New Irish Group in the Irish Music Awards) blends the freedom and lyricism of traditional folk forms with the discipline gained from years of training as classical musicians and the competitive world of Irish dance.
Along with their regular show, they also have a touring Christmas show and a Christmas album that was included in a Putumayo World Music compilation of notable Celtic Christmas arrangements in 2011.

The sisters are professional performers and entertainers and have performed around the country at Celtic and folk music festivals, community concerts, state and county fairs, halftime shows, schools of all grades, colleges, theaters and concert series of all sizes. With original songs and fiddle tunes written by the sisters, sibling harmony, folk roots and the nerve to take risks with style, a Gothard Sisters' show is joyful and exuberant, full of surprises, and leaves audiences refreshed and inspired.
