Screaming Orphans, a genre-bending, chart-topping all-sister band from Ireland, are known worldwide for their award-winning sound, combining original pop songs with a unique take on traditional Irish music. From a precociously early age, the Diver sisters entertained international audiences accompanying their mother, legendary céilí singer Kathleen Fitzgerald. The band has always defied being pigeonholed, having masterfully developed their own unique fusion of folk and pop. The sisters’ trademarks, spine-tingling fourpart harmony and mastery of their instruments, combine with their highly energized performances to take audiences of all ages on an exhilarating and emotional musical journey.
Screaming Orphans’ pitch perfect harmonies have led them to many collaborations on recordings and stage with artists such as Sinéad O’Connor, Peter Gabriel, Joni Mitchell, Baaba Maal, Afro Celt Sound System and Martin Furey. The band continues to tour and play extensively across America, Canada and Europe. As of this year, the band has released 15 albums, encompassing both original pop and folk/Irish music, as well as one Christmas album. Their albums Taproom, Life in a Carnival, and Sunshine and Moss have topped Billboard, iTunes and World Music charts.
