2018 was a full year for the Gothard Sisters. We released a new album, two new music videos, toured the country doing shows at venues large and small, wrote a lot of new songs and saw a lot of new places.
Thanks for everything. Happy New Year!
Music in video: Midnight Sun - https://spoti.fi/2TgVKMy

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.

The Official Music Video for Hummingbird from Midnight Sun - a colorful Irish-Americana fiddle tune played on mandolin, whistle, fiddle and strings.
The Official Music Video for Hark! The Herald Angels Sing! Filmed on a beautiful snowy mountain top in the middle of the Winter, we also had some fun with heraldic ribbons, a passing horse-drawn sleigh, and some of the local wildlife. Enjoy!
The Official Music Video for Christmas Flower from Falling Snow. Filmed on a snowy day in the middle of the annual Christmas tour, this features a roaring fire, snowy landscapes on the road, special guest artists from Irish dancers to string players that joined the '16 Christmas with the Gothard Sisters Tour. Enjoy!
Music video for Queen of Argyll from Mountain Rose. A new take on a classic Andy M. Stewart song, this tells the tale of a woman who is very admired; all the roses in the garden / would bow and ask her pardon / for not one could match the beauty of the Queen of all Argyll.
Music video for Cat in a Bush from Mountain Rose - a wild and crazy fiddle tune dedicated to a cat who likes to ruin lavender bushes in our neighborhood. You're welcome.
