Lilt is the Irish traditional music duo of Tina Eck on flute and tin whistle and Keith Carr on bouzouki and banjo.  They play the traditional dance music of Ireland - jigs, reels, hornpipes, the occasional slow air or vocal number.  They met in the Washington DC pub session circuit and have been performing together steadily since 2009.  We are excited about their new show Lilt 'n' Dance which they have created in collaboration with dance champion Kate Bole and her superb team of Culkin LIVE dancers. Kate has developed amazing choreography for Lilt's music, and the dancing is innovative and breathtaking.

Lilt has released three CDs; "Lilt", their ?rst (2010) became a surprise hit in their local Irish scene. Their second, "Onward", came out in 2011, and "Little Falls", their latest, was released in December 2013. Their recordings have been critically acclaimed in the US and in the international Irish music press. In addition to Keith and Tina, "Onward" and "Little Falls" feature a number of prominent guest artists, who add a variety of stylistic nuances to the duo's signature "?ute and zouk" sound.

Lilt is a multiple nominee for the Wammy Awards (2012-2015) and they were nominated for the international Irish Music Awards in 2012. They have appeared in concert throughout the eastern US, with performances at such notable venues as The Embassy of Ireland, The Kennedy Center, The Birchmere, The Institute of Musical Traditions, The Old Brogue Celtic Concert Series, the Washington Conservatory of Music, the Swift Run Celtic Concert Series, and numerous music festivals.

"…a sound that is often moody, sometimes delicate, and – perhaps when you least expect it – will seize you by the shoulders with a quiet yet prodigious intensity.” - Boston Irish Reporter

"It has all been a lovely listen.  I am in awe..... the things you are playing are so beautiful and very complex." - Reed Martin, Old Time musician Lilt's latest CD is "Little Falls"
