Music Video Release: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing 

Watch the Official Music Video for Hark!  

It's time for an official music video from Falling Snow!  This video attempts to capture the spirit which came with arranging this beautiful classic Christmas song into a Gothard Sisters-style celebration.  It is a joyful song, and we wanted to add a little Celtic flair to it, as well.  This video was lots of fun to film, and is our second video from the Falling Snow album.  You can see the first one, Christmas Flower, right here.

Music Video Release: Christmas Flower 

Watch the Official Music Video for Christmas Flower! 

It's time for an official music video from Falling Snow!  This video captures the warmth of a new original Christmas tune the band wrote for the album - Christmas Flower.  The name comes from Poinsettias, the cheerful red blooms that appear in the market every year at Christmas.  Thanks to collaborations with the Children's Gym Irish Dance Performance team in Portland Oregon, Miss Peggy's Irish Dancers in Edmonds, Washington, and the CWU Strings Department at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington, for adding their beautiful smiles and talents to the general celebrating in this video!

Performances with Saratoga Orchestra 

The Gothard Sisters joined together to collaborate with Whidbey Island-based Saratoga Orchestra in the Seattle area over the weekend, lending their Celtic flair to the orchestra's final concert of their season, and adding a new dimension to their original music.  

The weekend of performances included concerts in both Coupeville and Langley, Washington.  The orchestra played arrangements of four Gothard Sisters songs; Flying Sails, Auld Lang Syne, Scarborough Fair and Hummingbird.  The arrangements were very well-received and the concert was a great success.  The two groups hope to collaborate again in the future.

Music Video Release: Hummingbird 

Watch the Official Music Video for Hummingbird!

It has been a long time since the Gothard Sisters last released a music video!  Put the months recording Mountain Rose right next to the heaviest touring year ever in 2015 and the band ended up not being able to get around to making any videos.  And while they still plan to make some videos for the songs on Mountain Rose, when the idea for Hummingbird came about, the sisters decided to release a video for it.   The new song (now available on iTunes) is full of sunshine, and such interesting colors.  The band wanted to make a video that was colorful and interesting, with some special Gothard Sisters touches.  Here it is for you to enjoy, as well as links to purchase the new recording.
