Charlottesville, VA 22903
The Gothard Sisters are incredible performers who seamlessly combine celtic music and song with Irish dance in their shows. It’s not to be missed! The show will feature The Gothard sisters, an internationally touring band of three sisters from Seattle, WA, as well as an opening set by Charlottesville’s own Ben-David Warner, formerly of the band Scythian, joined by Julia Kwolyk.
Maivish explores the landscape of time-honored melodies and songs, and comes home along new pathways, making music with vibrant energy and delight. Gathering traditions from the British Isles, Ireland and America with a mix of original compositions, their performance is infused with lush vocal harmonies, inspired interplay, and captivating spirit.
At its core, the group is a collaboration between American fiddler Jaige Trudel and British born guitarist Adam Broome who have been performing together as a duo for over a decade. Also performing with Maivish is Matthew Olwell on flutes, bodhran, and percussive dance.
