January 9, 2013
Lehigh Acres Citizen

The Rotary Club of Fort Myers will present the fourth annual Screaming Orphans concert at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center on Jan. 26.

The band Kilt the Messenger will perform outside in front of the center beginning at 6 p.m., followed by the Screaming Orphans on the inside stage at 8 p.m.

The Screaming Orphans are four talented, funny, high-spirited, musically obsessed sisters who had the good fortune to be raised in Bundoran in County Donegal, Ireland. Their sound has been compared to the Bangles and the Cranberries and their musical influences range from the Beatles, R.E.M., Indigo Girls and Abba, to traditional Irish music.
