CONSTANT BILLY @ Things Celtic | Sunday, May 26

Things Celtic

Things Celtic features music by Constant Billy, Sunday, May 26, 2013, from 3-5 p.m. FREE show. All ages welcome.

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.
