The ceilidh music which can be heard in the wedding flashback scenes was recorded by progressive folk rock band Sloth Metropolis. However, due to a production error, the band was uncredited.
The tune played is based on the traditional folk song 'Morrison's Jig' but was given a heavier rock sound by the band and would have been titled 'Stonemouth Jig'. See more
