Gothard Sisters Guest Host Marc Gunn's Irish and Celtic Music Podcast Episode #409 

Hey guys, we recorded a podcast! 

As you know, we're big fans of Marc Gunn and his Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. For members of the independent Celtic music community, he has always been supportive of new musicians and albums from day one. So when he reached out to ask us to host an episode of his podcast and share some of our favorite bands and songs with his listeners - of course, we said yes!

You can listen to the episode here:
Irish and Celtic Music Podcast Episode #409: The Gothard Sisters As Hosts

On the podcast we feature a few (certainly not all, that would take much longer than an hour! Although many are featured on our Spotify playlists) of our favorite bands and songs in Celtic music, as well as some of our own songs and the stories behind them. Listed below are the songs we played, along with links to the bands and their music. If you enjoyed the show, please share it with someone else, subscribe to the podcast, follow these bands on Spotify and Bandsintown, visit their websites, and go and see a live show. Each of these bands has a wonderful live show as well.

Concerts and Tours: St Augustine 

We've been to St. Augustine before, but never to perform. When we heard they had a Celtic festival, we thought eventually one day it would happen and we'd end up there. And sure enough, the festival reached out and booked us for the festivities so we were excited to return to this beautiful city for their wonderful festival.

Concerts and Tours: Arizona 2019 

We just got back from two weeks performing in Arizona. It was our first time performing in this beautiful state, and it was great! Special thanks go to TAD Management for organizing this tour and to everyone working hard behind the scenes at the venues. See lots of pictures on Instagram here.

And of course thanks to all the audiences and everyone who came out to the concerts! 🌵🏜🌞

Collaboration: When the Rain Falls 

We had the absolute pleasure to collaborate with Michele McLaughlin last year on a beautiful song called "When The Rain Falls". In this new video we chat a bit about our process of making the song. One interesting fact was that we never played the song together in person, doing the entire collaboration over email and sound clips exchanged back and forth. Although we did meet up after the song was finished, and had a wonderful time chatting about music and life! 
Check it out here and listen to the album at the link in the comments. :)Enjoy!

Playlist: Celtic and World Music for Kids 

The three of us grew up listening to folk, world and classical music and we truly believe there is something about the folk music of the world that is soothing, comforting and inspiring for children's imaginations.

Here's a small collection of music for kids, carefully curated. We want you to feel safe playing this list for your kids. If you have ideas and suggestions to be added to this playlist, please let us know in the comments! Enjoy.
