"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!" -Scottish Country Dancing and More

Are Ye Sleepin' Maggie?
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
This lovely old Scottish song is a great testament to persistent devotion. It's also a fine example of the outrageous things a man will say to get inside his lady's bedroom.  


The Ballad of Johnny Collier
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
A true story by the redoubtable Jez Lowe about an outlaw coal miner. The game was fixed from the start.


Love Is All Around
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
Big hit for the Troggs back in '68. Emily pried it out of Bill's memory. Bill swears that love actually is all around.


Black Jack Davey
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
You could fill a book with songs about the handsome gypsy who runs away with the beautiful lady. This particular version is an unusual hillbilly blues setting Emily put together after hearing a 1950s recording of Arkansas singer Mr. Wise Jones.


Mally Lee
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
From common beaus to Bonnie Prince Charlie in the space of 3 minutes: the scandalous Mally Lee is the original social climber. Based on a true story.


The Trees They Do Grow High
Hi-Fi     Low-Fi
A tragic story of death in the wrong order. One of the most beloved of Scottish ballads.
