Friday evening The Gothard Sisters performed Irish music and Dance on the Third Place Commons Stage. They were very entertaining and drew a large crowd.

Twins Greta and Willow and younger sister Solana appeared in costume playing Fiddle, Guitar and Bodhran. The girls danced through most of their songs as they played. Little children lined the stage through the concert and little dancers tried to keep up with the girls through the evening.

For a change of pace, the girl performed a flamenco dance.

Near the end of the evening they played Charlie Daniels' version of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."

They finished the evening with the Irish step dancing they are known for.

The Gothard family lives in Edmonds and does a lot of local performances. This is their first time at Third Place Commons and the house was packed.

I first saw the Gothard Sisters on YouTube, in addition to being very lovely young women, they bring a sense of pure joy when they play their music.
