One of the first songs you hear in Braid is Shira Kammen’s “Downstream”, from the album Music of Waters. In the credits for the Braid I credited the entire song to Shira Kammen, but it turns out that’s insufficient, as some melodies are by other musicians.
So as not to distort anything, I’ll quote Shira directly:
Although I recorded these pieces, and arranged and played them, parts of them are by others or are traditional, and I don’t want to misrepresent them.
Downstream has three different tunes – the first one is by me, and is called Downstream (The whole cut is called Downstream, just named after the first tune).
The second tune is from the Galician group Luar na Lubre from their album Plenilunio and is called “O Son do ar”, composed by Bieto Romero (Canciones del Mundo), and the third tune is called ‘Borrela d’Aragon’ and is by French bagpiper Eric Montbel. (I thought it was traditional, and just found out in the last couple of days that it was written by Eric).
The Lullaby Set is a combination of Manx and Irish traditional tunes.
So, there you go!
