Q

What strings do you all use on your violins?


The Gothard Sisters responded on 09/25/2012
A

We use D'addario Prelude strings for our violins! :)

Q

I'm new to you very talented girls. It appears to me that every one of you can play all the instruments? I've been a Michael Flatley fan for years and the Celtic Women. You're definitely pro's too.

Thank you! :)
We all play violin, but only Willow and Solana play the bodhran, while only Greta can play the guitar. At least right now anyways! Willow is working on learning the mandolin currently, and Solana has been incorporating the djembe in to shows as well. :)

Q

Do you play Wintergrass in Belvue Wa Or will you???????????

We haven't yet, but hopefully some day! :-)

Q

My question for you three is, did you always enjoy learning music and dance, or were there times when mom and dad encouraged you not to give up?


The Gothard Sisters responded on 09/25/2012
A

Learning music and dance was very challenging at first, and we are very lucky to have such supportive parents! There were definitely some times that we needed encouragement, and we couldn't have done it without them! :-)

Q

Were you (overly) nervous in your first performances as a group, or had you all had enough performing experience by then to feel confident?


The Gothard Sisters responded on 09/25/2012
A

Yes, I'm sure we were quite nervous when we had our first performance as a group! But I also think having many violin recitals and dance-outs beforehand helped to level out the beginning jitters. ;)

Q

In Fair weather.would you rather play indoors or outdoor shows?


The Gothard Sisters responded on 09/25/2012
A

I think it would depend on the weather, as if it it was nice outside, an outdoor show would be optimal. If it was a place where it rained frequently, however, an indoor venue would definitely be our first choice!

Q

Why don't you compete on Anerica's Got Talent?


The Gothard Sisters responded on 09/25/2012
A

That's good idea! Maybe we will try out sometime, but we're a little too busy at the moment. It's a great show though, and an awesome opportunity for both musicians and entertainers to share their talents! :)

Q

I hope you loved Heppner Oregon when you were here in March.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the show! :D
