Screaming Orphans

An Irish-American History Musical Tribute!

Screaming Orphans

Screaming Orphans is a pop-rock band of four fun, high-spirited, musically-obsessed sisters from Bundoran in County Donegal Ireland.

They have been singing and playing since they were children; but officially formed their own rock band in their teenage years.Their sound has been compared to the Bangles and the Cranberries and musical influences range from the Beatles, R.E.M., Indigo Girls, and Abba, to traditional Irish music.

Screaming Orphans have traveled around the world and played alongside musical greats such as Peter Gabriel, Babba Maal, Christy Moore, Liam O’Maonlai, and Sinead O’Connor. The ladies toured with Sinead O’Connor across Europe, America, and Canada, and appeared on David Letterman and other shows.

The Screaming Orphans came to Penn State Harrisburg in spring 2010 to help us commemorate Irish-American Heritage Month, and now they're back to help us celebrate it again!

This event is funded and sponsored by the Offices of Campus Life and Intercultural Affairs (CLIA) and the Student Activity Fund (SAF), and is free and open to the public.
