Brave Soundtrack Transports Moviegoers to Ancient Scotland

One of the reasons I’m looking forward to Pixar’s Brave is the promise of a musical soundtrack that evokes the rich tapestry of Gaelic culture. It sounds like I”m in luck. Patrick Doyle’s score promises authenticity with a fresh and contemporary approach to, as well as two original songs performed by lauded Scottish Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis. A third original song plays during the film’s epilogue and is performed by UK singing sensation Birdy with British folk rock band Mumford & Sons.

“The music of ‘Brave’ supports the story, bolstering this epic journey with Merida,” said Director Mark Andrews. “The music really sets the tone for the film and underscores the time period. We wanted to capture this ancient feel of Scotland and the music really adds another layer of authenticity.”
