Gothard Sisters – Midnight Sun

Album (Brief) | Self Release | By Allan Wilkinson | Stars: 3/5

Despite hailing from Edmonds, Washington, the Gothard Sisters (Greta, Willow and Solana), appear to have most of their influences very much grounded in the Irish tradition, the siblings being equally at home with Irish dancing as they are with their Celtic fiddle tunes. Midnight Sun finds the trio in fine fettle both in their tunes and in their song choices, with some fine storytelling in “Mermaids”, “Bells on the Hill” and “Rose, Marie and Heather”.
