Composer Notes on this Music Track

This is a traditional Irish music slip jig with a new-age element. The tune starts with the main melody performed on the fiddle and tin whistle,  both classic Irish traditional musical instruments.

I use the harp to accompany the main melody in a staccato, plucked chord way, taking inspiration from my pop music production where I often use this technique to create a catchy hook.

The uilleann pipes join the main melody in the second round. You will find in Irish traditional music that there is a “low bit” and a “high bit”. We call this the low bar and the high bar. In a typical slip jig, the low bar is played twice each and then repeated.

I use bodhran as part of the percussion, which is another classic Irish traditional musical instrument. In this tune, I use more dynamic cinematic drums to give a strong and powerful undertone, reminiscent of a Celtic hero or legend.

Irish traditional slip jigs are usually jaunty and cheerful tunes, which this jig is. Inspired by wood nymphs, there is lighthearted and spritely melody, a nod to all the Celtic folklore of fairies and leprechauns.

Like all Irish jigs, it is moderately fast, upbeat and perfect music for games, videos on YouTube or content needing a Celtic or New-Age Irish sound.
