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/rock 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 America and Europe.

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

The band's 2019 pop album Life in a Carnival charted in the top 25 in the iTunes Pop Music charts in the U.S., top 10 in the Billboard World Albums charts, No. 1 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts in Ireland, and No. 3 in the overall iTunes music charts in Ireland.

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