"A new day has dawned. There's a new band in the neighborhood, Constant Billy." Take the traditional music of Britain and Ireland. Shake and stir in a little Rock, Classical and Swing using "an incredible, eclectic repertoire of intricate harmonies" from "probably the best all-around folk a-cappella singers in Houston."Add in the accompaniment of Bodhran, guitar, tin whistle, recorder and bouzouki to create "stuff you just don't hear every day." Add a dash of "hilarious between-songs banter," and you have a duo that will leave you reeling. Constant Billy is the "GREATEST CELTIC VOCAL GROUP IN TEXAS!"
