from Celt​-​tunes = WIN, released March 17, 2015
Step into any pub in Dublin after 9:00pm and you are almost guaranteed to find live music. These local musicians perform traditional Irish music (or “trad”): a combination of dance forms like the reel and the jig, tear-jerking ballads, and songs celebrating the wonderful invention of alcohol. ‘An Cailín ó Neidín’ (‘The Girl from Kenmare’) is modeled after the double jig, whose music falls into a pattern of two beats per measure with each beat divided into three pulses. The music begins with a slow, elegiac introduction that imitates the drone of bagpipes before launching into the proper quick dance tempo. Other common trad instruments like the fiddle, tin whistle, and the bodhrán are imitated in chiptune fashion throughout the track.

My wife and I honeymooned in Ireland where we were able to meet her great aunt Betty, born and raised in Kenmare and the youngest of fourteen children. We visited her again last year, but sadly received word that she passed away in February at the age of 94. Kenmare is a beautiful, tiny town where everyone knew who Betty was, and this track was written to honor her memory – we will never forget our girl from Kenmare.
