What can be said about three sisters who are beautiful beyond belief with pale blonde hair, porcelain complexions and eyes the color of the Pacific ocean? Oh, throw in the fact that they are incredibly talented in so many ways, it fair boggles the brain. Apparently, a lot can be said, since this review was originally three pages long.

The Gothard Sisters, hailing from the misty Pacific Northwest region of the United States, describe themselves as “three sisters performing high-energy Celtic song and dance.” The classic understatement, that. Amazingly multi-faceted, each girl brings her own special offering to the plate. While all three play the violin, 16-year-old Solana is also the lead singer and plays the bodhrán, strings, and djembe; 23-year-old Willow plays the bodhrán, mandolin, strings and cajón; and the eldest of the sisters at a mere 25 years, Greta plays violin, acoustic guitar, strings, cajón, piano and djembe. Willow and Greta also serve as backup singers...

I tried to preview the album but I only heard one girl sing for a short while on Raglan Road. The others seem to have a very long lead in with the music. Bit disappointing especially considering they are No. 1. I would have like to have heard them sing before purchasing the CD. They aren't played on the radio in Australia.

2013 Updated Review on Story Girl!

The Gothard Sisters set out to impress the crowd for their music as much as for their fairy-tale image on stage, offering an immersive Irish folk experience with an extra twist.

Despite their young age, these 3 sisters are already seasoned performers, with stage experience under their belt accumulated from a very young age, not only focusing on violin, their main instrument, but infusing their show and records with several instruments as well as vocals, in order to boost the overall dynamics and variety of their output.

The Gothard Sisters are always traveling around the country bringing their show to the crowds, but they are also very prolific in the studio: The trio released 6 full length albums, the most recent of which being 2011 "Story Girl", a collection of original songs inspired by the celtic music tradition.

With such a delicate, organic production value and impressive performances, it is no wonder that "Story Girl" went on to receive praise on an international level, often mentioned as one of the best Celtic records of the year. Where so many musicians risk to get stuck within their technicality, The Gothard Sisters truly bridge the gap between their formal musical training and their more instinctive, emotional side that make their performances so intimate and engaging.
