Hi,
I am very familiar with the group "The Castle Sisters" - they are my aunts. They were born in a small town called Charleroi, PA and moved to NYC in the 1950's and recorded many singles there - "Goodbye Dad" ranked the highest, I think. They also went by "The Kossol Sisters" but I'm not sure which name came first.

After their brief singing career they turned to singing in their churches. One of the sisters actually passed away earlier this year but the other two are still singing and going strong. If you have any particular questions, feel free to e-mail me, but I hope this helped!

Hi, Christine. IO lost a solid rock I could lean on when Josie was born into eternity. She help me learn how to be a Minister to the sick. Audrey helps keep me on the straight and narrow these days.

Is there any way to get some of their performances (audio and video)?

God Bless...... Don (cathudfl@gmail.com)
