The Gothard Sisters of Edmonds (Greta, Willow, and Solana) have released their latest full-length Celtic folk album, "Dragonfly."

When the sisters first set out to create this album, said Solana, they agreed that they wanted to make it into the kind of album they originally fell in love with when they first started listening to Celtic music.

"Even though the album was written, recorded and produced during a pandemic, it is full of hope," she said.

The 12 new songs touch on themes of reconnecting with inner strength, courage and resilience: From searching for wisdom in "Wise One," the joy of adventure in "Dragonfly," to the power of music and community in "Shadow and Sun" and "Long Road."

There's the story of a long-lost gold mine in "Meet Me at Dawn," as well as energetic new instrumental tunes "Hurricane Ridge," "Wildflower Jigs," and "Chasing the Sun."

Solana said the album is the most authentic Gothard Sisters record to date, combining layers of fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, djembe, bodhran, whistles, and vocal harmonies with modern recording techniques and production.

"Dragonfly" was released June 4, and is available on all digital, physical and streaming platforms.
