ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Constant Billy's "Let Me In" is a stunning musical achievement. By turns humorous, poignant, romantic, and rife with merriment, the Celtic treasures of this collection charm and entertain the listener with unforgettable power and musicianship. For many years, my wife and I have followed contemporary ensembles which keep the Celtic musical tradition startlingly alive, and none can match the freshness, vitality, and artistry of Constant Billy.
- Larry D. Thomas, Poet Laureate of Texas

“Let Me In, the long awaited CD by Constant Billy, that dynamic duo of Bill Galbraith & Emily Standish, is finally here! and worth the wait. 15 great tracks and about 45 minutes of wonderful music. The songs while traditional are not the ones usually seen on Celtic albums. The CD showcases the incredible singing of Emily Standish, a powerful voice that conveys purity, wistfulness and beauty. My personal favorite is "Calon Lan" (The Shining Heart) which never fails to move me; it is sung in both Welsh and English. Bill's good humor and mellow baritone round out the selections, and now the rest of the world can enjoy their music through this CD." - SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCING AND MORE
