Continue to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the Screaming Orphans March 18

3/4/2010 —

Screaming OrphansBring the luck of the Irish to the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) at Penn State York on Thursday, March 18, at 7:30 p.m. when Screaming Orphans continues their St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a free concert. No ticket is required for this performance.

These four funny, high-spirited, musically obsessed sisters were raised in the magic of Bundoran in County Donegal, Ireland, and bring the great tradition of Irish music to the stage. They began singing and playing Irish music when they were very young and when they reached their teenage years, they knew it was time to start their own rock band.

While they can never forget their roots in traditional Irish music, the Screaming Orphans draw on a diverse set of influences from Simon & Garfunkel to REM, with a strong focus on melody driven songs with pop and rock strains. The diversity of the American music scene led them to relocate to New York City and they regularly tour up and down the east coast.

Penn State York’s Cultural and Performing Artists Series is sponsored by Penn State York and MediaOne PA. For information regarding ticketed performances at The Pullo Center, please call (717) 505-8900 or visit them on the Web at www.pullocenter.yk.psu.edu.
