The Gawlers are a fun-loving, fiddling family band — from the heart of Maine — with shining smiles and joyful sounds. John and Ellen Gawler are master fiddle and banjo players and their three daughters, Molly, Edith and Elsie grew up with the music and formed a band of their own – The Gawler Sisters. The band includes “brother” Bennett Konesni and Ethan Tischler (Elsie’s partner.) The full band has a gorgeous and high-spirited sound of string instruments (fiddle, banjo, guitar, cello, bass) as well as harmony singing.
