About the Band
Tom Lanigan was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to America when he was sixteen. He grew up developing a great love for both Irish and American music. In the early 90’s, he started the folk/rock band Screaming Under Stars, which went on to open for The Commitments and Black 47. Since then Tom has been working full time, often in a band capacity but he has developed an extensive solo schedule also. He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with acts such as Solas, Makem & Spain, The High Kings and Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfetones. Playing 5nights a week for the last 10 years from Connecticut to Vermont, Tom has recently played The Canton Irish Music festival, The Worcester Irish Music festival and The Dorchester Irish Music festival. In addition to the countless numbers of bars, theaters and concert halls along the way, Tom has developed a strong following with his unique take on traditional and contemporary Irish music, and his ever growing collection of original compositions. Moving forward, Tom continues to share his passion for Irish music while entertaining audiences throughout New England.
