The Screaming Orphans are the four Diver sisters from Bundoran, County Donegal. They combine their own original pop/rock music with the Céilí tradition style of music that was inherited from their family roots. As the Screaming Orphans, the band first came to prominence when Sinéad O’Connor asked them to tour with her, as her back up vocalists and opening act. The band has gone on to tour and play extensively across America and Europe. Their musical reputation has led to collaborations on recordings with Baaba Maal, Afro Celt Sound System, Peter Gabriel and Joni Mitchell. As of this year, the band has released 10 albums of both original pop/rock and traditional Irish music. The Screaming Orphans split their time between New York City and Donegal.
