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."

"[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."

“The chemistry between the sisters is amazing and comes through in the ease with which they go from song to song and their antics on stage. The audience at Caras park sat mesmerized by the music, while quite a few people, especially children, could not contain themselves and danced and danced to the music. I highly recommend seeing them whenever they perform in your area and see why they were the winners of the Best New Irish Artist in the recent Irish Music Awards.”
— Bob Leggett, Missoula Music Examiner
“Their on-stage charisma, energy, enthusiasm and extraordinary talent is second to none. They have a unique talent of being able to captivate their audience for the entirety of their show, leaving spectators wanting more. Furthermore, the Gothard Sisters' eclectic style and theatrical performance is something that will continue to flourish as these artists will no doubt take the World by storm. A must-see!”
