FRIDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 2019
We cannot wait to welcome The Screaming Orphans to The Haven this November.
Four sisters from Bundoran in County Donegal, Ireland, they have been singing and playing traditional Irish music since they were young and when they hit their teenage years knew it was time to start their own pop-rock band.
Soon after they were invited to play the St.Brigid’s day concert in Kildare along with truly great Irish artists like Christy Moore, Liam O’Maonlai, and Sinead O’Connor.
Sinead then asked them to be her back-up singers and open for her on her Gospel Oak Tour. They went across Europe, America and Canada, and appeared on David Letterman and other TV shows as part of her show and as a band in our own right.
They have toured with world music star, Babba Maal and recorded with Peter Gabriel and worked with a host of other world-renowned artists.
Their debut album was recorded in Normandy France with the legendary Mike Hedges, who has produced for the likes of Siouxie and the Banshees, U2, Manic Street Preachers, Texas, and Travis.
“While we can never forget our roots in traditional Irish music, the Screaming Orphans draw on a diverse set of influences ranging from Simon and Garfunkel, The Bangles to The McNulty Family, with a strong focus on melody-driven songs with pop and rocks strains. ”
“[Screaming Orphans] are known worldwide for their mix of pop and traditional music.” – Entertainment.ie
“If you’re looking for a textbook example of how a fusion style should be handled, look no further than the Screaming Orphans.”
