10 Years: It's The Little Things 

Hey!
We have an exciting announcement. This summer officially marks 10 years of sisterly music-making as The Gothard Sisters. 

When we first started out we had no idea this musical adventure together would turn into the worldwide thing it has become, and we are so grateful to you; the listeners, the families, the dancers in the aisles, the concert-goers, our many coaches, teachers and mentors, our friends and fellow musicians we’ve met all over the world who always have an encouraging word or a funny story to keep us going, the agents and venues and promoters that took a chance on us and continue to support us every year, the fans who drive for hundreds of miles just to get to a concert, and of course the fans who show up in our shirts and sit in the front row at festivals. You’ve been so energetically excited along with us as we journey through the wild and unpredictable world of music and the music business. Whether you’ve been following us from day one, or if you just discovered us this week - thank you. Here’s to the next ten years! And that’s where the next part comes in… 

To mark the occasion, we’re releasing a 10-year anniversary album called “It’s the Little Things.” The album has 18 songs and includes two never-before-released tracks: Country Roads (finally! You guys have been asking for it for years and we finally recorded it!) and a new, updated, 2019 version of our song It’s the Little Things. The album will be released on August 9th across the internet and can be pre-ordered now. 

But that’s not all! We’re also releasing an awesome new summer t-shirt featuring the #hobbitguitar (mandolin) for festival season. These are soft, comfy, and green (bring on the Irish fests and St. Patrick’s Day!) and come in all sizes. Don’t wait, we have a limited number available and so far these are already flying off the merchandise table at shows. 

Head over to our website to order your new CD and new t shirt!

Meanwhile, drop us a line here or on social media and let us know your story of when and how you first found out about our music! We’re curious! Was it a show? A video? Spotify? Podcast? 

Thanks again for everything, 
Greta, Willow and Solana

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.
