VIDEO: Irish trad player with epic 'Thriller' cover with the help of nine fiddles

Irish trad player Niall Murphy, covers one of Michael Jackson's hits, ‘Thriller’ with the use of an Acapella app.

Mr Murphy explained how he created the cover; 'Before starting to record, I arranged the piece for nine fiddles. Some tracks are melody, some are plucked bass lines, some are replicating the brass section and using a fiddle technique called ‘The Chop’, I replicated the percussion sound. When it all played together I was surprised at the outcome. It mightn’t be exactly like his (Michael Jackson's) own version but the idea is there i think (I hope)'.

It is well worth a listen!
