Edmonds’ Gothard Sisters release CD, ‘Midnight Sun’

May 03, 2018

Edmonds’ own Celtic-inspired trio, the Gothard Sisters, release a new CD, “Midnight Sun,” on May 4.

The CD is their first fully self-penned collection of music, featuring contemporary Celtic-folk style songs and include tunes written about being on the road, about traveling and adventuring (“Wandering,” “Midnight Sun” “Hummingbird” and “Elderflower March”) as well as the other side of traveling, which is being homesick and longing to go home (“Colors of Home,” “Mazama Mornings”).

There are songs that tell stories of being at sea (“Bells on the Hill,” “Mermaids”) as well as songs that are new takes on traditional topics and rhymes (“Rose, Marie and Heather,” “Cat and the Fiddle.”)

The album also features a guest appearance and collaboration with New Age pianist Michele McLaughlin on the instrumental track “When the Rain Falls.” She is a top-played musicians on Pandora and is well known for her solo piano music.

The CD is available on all digital, physical and streaming platforms.

The Gothard Sisters – Greta, Willow and Solana – are a Celtic-inspired folk music group that has become internationally recognized as multi-instrumentalist influenced folk musicians, songwriters and performers.

For the past three years, the sisters have a performed a Christmas show at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

They now regularly perform more than 120 shows a year nationally and internationally.

Their brand of Celtic-inspired original music pays respect to the older traditions of folk and classical music, while reintroducing them to a modern audience through new arrangements.

The Gothard Sisters perform Aug. 19 as part of the city's summer concert series at City Park.
