Dragonfly by established Celtic musicians "The Gothhard Sisters" is an essential album for followers of folk music, both of the historical and modern magical varieties. The Pacific Northwest trio of siblings bring their unique sound to life with messages of independence and freedom. Intricate instrumentals and individual voices from The Gothhard Sisters ring true throughout the entire length of the record with contemporary jigs and unbeatable energy from each separate artist to come together as one phenomenon.

The opening track "Chasing the Sun" is a lively instrumental to invoke a positive mood with emphasis on violins that are suitable for Irish dance. The talented sisters, Greta, Willow, and Solana work in harmony on the title song "Dragonfly" that soars with airy vocals and animated storytelling. A special percussion section animates the catchy tune, making this a standout single that deserves more than a solo listen. The 12 song album hits a finale through "Long Road," a hopeful anthem with a calming tone that makes an excellent outro.

Dragonfly is a great start for new fans of Celtic music as the record maintains an enjoyable pop feel that blends with traditional Irish influences. The Gothard Sisters showcase their individual personalities with this dynamic album along with their entire musical discography including the two prior records, The Little Things and Midnight Sun. These siblings are a breath of fresh air for family musical groups as they exhibit an unbreakable bond with each sister contributing their unique talents in full detail along the journey.

Fans of pop country such as Taylor Swift and those who want the authentic Celtic feel can find a beautiful balance with The Gothhard Sisters. Greta, Willow, and Solana Gothhard prove to be a tremendous trio with feel-good and emotional songs that keep up with their attitude and individuality.
