The Gothard Sisters release new Christmas album, Falling Snow

December 2016 will see the release of a new album of Celtic-inspired Christmas music from the Gothard Sisters in their new holiday album, Falling Snow.

The Gothard Sisters have compiled a spectacular new Celtic-Inspired folk album of Christmas music that expresses the joy of the most wonderful season of the year through ancient beloved carols like Joy to the World, Hark!  The Herald Angels Sing and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen updated in new and exciting ways as well as holiday favorites like Winter Wonderland and Skater’s Waltz, all woven together with the sisters’ signature youthful arrangements, lovely sibling harmonies, lush strings and percussion, and plenty of feisty fiddling.

“It was high time for a new Christmas album featuring the songs we’ve been playing at the Christmas shows over the last few years - there were many great songs and arrangements just begging to be recorded,” says Greta Gothard, “The music of Christmas is so beautiful, it has been a delight to work on these arrangements of eight classics - Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, Still Still Still, Winter Wonderland, Skater’s Waltz, Good King Wenceslas, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, French Carol (Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant) and Joy to the World, as well as including two new tunes that the band wrote - Christmas Flower and The Happy Elf.”

The new album, Falling Snow, will be available December 3rd on the Gothard Sisters’ website, iTunes, Amazon and all other online outlets as well as at each of the shows on the Christmas Tour.
