The Screaming Orphans Returning
To Alliance For The Arts January 30
The Rotary Club of Fort Myers is bringing The Screaming Orphans back to

the Arts. Comprised of four sisters from Ireland, The Screaming Orphans are

“There is a great tradition of music to be found in Irish homes especially in the
Gaeltacht or Irish-speaking areas which have produced the likes of Clannad, Enya and
Mairead, Micheal and Triona Ni Dhomhnaill. Our home was no exception. From we
were young, we’ve been singing and playing traditional Irish music but when we hit our
teenage years we knew it was time to start our own pop rock band.”

p.m . There will be a special performance by Abby Fletcher before The Screaming
Orphans take the stage at 7:30 p.m .
