Info from The Annotated Score (The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films):

Bilbo’s long expected party begins with diagetic music from Plan 9. “They’ve worked with Peter and Fran for years,” explains Shore. “They’re talented writers and had the right feel for it. It was nice that there was a difference between this music and what I was composing.”

Plan 9 first collaborated with Peter Jackson on 1995’s Forgotten Silver. In The Lord of the Rings films, they specialized in diagetic, or on-screen music, including the hobbits’ party music (“Flaming Red Hair”) and the Wood-elves’ song (“The Elvish Lament”).
