About Screaming Orphans

Screaming Orphans, an all-sister band from Bundoran, Co. Donegal, Ireland, are one of the most sought after Celtic bands with a powerful, award-winning sound, combining their original melodic pop songs with a unique take on traditional Irish music and song. From an early age, the Diver sisters performed with their mother Kathleen Fitzgerald (a well-known céilí singer in Ireland) and when they hit their teenage years, they formed their own Celtic pop band, Screaming Orphans, which led to a signing by Warner Music UK.

As 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 are renowned for their trademark spine-tingling four part harmony which has led to many collaborations on recordings with artists such as Martin Furey, Baaba Maal, Afro Celt Sound System, Peter Gabriel and Joni Mitchell. The band continues to tour and play extensively across North America and Europe.

The band’s 2017 Folk/Irish album Taproom charted No. 1 in the iTunes World Music charts and No. 10 in the Billboard World Albums charts. Taproom was named 2017 Folk/Pop/Rock Album Of The Year by the Folk’n’Rock magazine.

Screaming Orphans’ 2019 pop album, Life in a Carnival, produced by internationally distinguished producer John Reynolds, charted No. 24 in the iTunes Pop Music charts (U.S.), No. 7 in the Billboard World Albums charts, No. 1 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts (IE), and No. 3 in the overall iTunes music charts (IE).

As of this year, the band has released 14 albums of both original pop and Folk/Irish music.

Organizer Philadelphia Folksong Society

Organizer of PFS Presents Screaming Orphans

The Philadelphia Folksong Society provides programs dedicated to preserving, promoting, and securing the legacy of folk music and related forms of expression. The Folk Festival is our largest fundraiser, allowing us to present, underwrite, and promote a wide variety of activities, such as our Odyssey of American Music. This unique outreach program places outstanding folk performers into classrooms and assemblies in public, parochial, and private schools throughout the area, free of charge to the school.  With many school districts facing historic budget cuts, the first line item to be slashed is the one to provide music and art to students.
