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.

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!

Video: Paddy's Green Shamrock Shores 

Hi everyone! 

This is a song (and set of tunes) we recorded in collaboration with House of Hamill, Mickey Spain, and members of Runa, Emish, Socks in the Frying Pan and Poor Man's Gambit. Please help us out by sharing the video far and wide! 

Why record a collaboration? Well, besides just being a lot of fun because all of these people are not only fantastic musicians but wonderful people to work with as well, all of us wanted to do something special for World Charity Day (September 5th)! The purpose of this collaboration is to raise money for the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a charity which donates high-quality musical instruments to deserving, under-funded music programs, and provides an array of support services to school districts. 

All of us in these bands know what the ability to play music has done for us all personally, and we believe that every child, should have the same opportunity if we can help them out. 

Donate to the campaign here, and get a free download of the track in your email!

Collaborations: Meeting Michele 

About two months ago we met Michele McLaughlin​ in person for the first time!  Funnily enough, this was after we’d already collaborated and recorded When the Rain Falls together for the new album.  
Listen to the song here: 

Michele’s music is absolutely beautiful, and we’ve loved it for years! So this was a dream come true to play music together. ✨🎶  
Her albums are on iTunes and Amazon, and you can also follow her on Pandora, and Spotify.
