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.

Radio: Thistle and Shamrock 

The Gothard Sisters were recently featured on NPR's Thistle and Shamrock radio program, hosted by Fiona Ritchie.  The radio program played "St. Anne's Reel" from the new album, Mountain Rose, and aired on August 20th, 2015. 
You can read the show notes and listen to the episode right here


The band was absolutely thrilled to be played on the Thistle and Shamrock, as listening to cassette tape recordings of this radio program on NPR all through their childhood was one of their main inspirations for playing Celtic music and their interest in fiddle music. 
A huge thank you to Fiona Ritchie for playing St Anne's Reel, and we hope you enjoy the episode!
