The Screaming Orphans are four sisters with the good fortune to have been raised in the magic of Bundoran in County Donegal, Ireland. There is a great tradition of music to be found in Irish homes especially in the Gaeltacht or Irish-speaking areas which have produced the likes of Clannad, Enya and Mairead, Micheal and Triona Ni Dhomhnaill. Their home was no exception. From when they were young, they’ve been singing and playing traditional Irish music but when they hit teenage years they knew it was time to start their own pop rock band.
They decided that they had outgrown the name of The Diver Sisters and so adopted the name The Screaming Orphans and thus the second stage of the band came into being. Although they are known for their pop songs they have never lost touch with their roots and can easily switch from an original pop song into a trad tune or a verse of the Galway Shawl.
