Just a song in the dark...

Can anyone help me identify this song, given a description of the first 45ish seconds (no lyrics)?

The beginning of the song was played right before my school's TV broadcast announcements, so I'm guessing that at one time it was somewhat well-known, but it could also be something completely random.
The song starts with a single, solo melody, vaguely Celtic sounding and possibly played on the violin. After about 20 seconds of this, the melody stops and a drum beat and bass line start up, with a swung rhythm that sounds sort of like this: BUM baddum. BUM baddum. BUM baddum. BUM baddum. Then a sort of a jolly, celebratory tune starts up. Something like you might hear at the party in the Shire, that also manages to sound something like a pop song. The song was cut off at this point, before I could hear if there were any lyrics.
Long shot, but does any of this ring a bell for anyone?
