Lilt” -- a duo consisting of Tina Eck on flute and tinwhistle and Keith Carr on bouzouki and banjo -- are trying to impersonate all of the aforementioned definitions of their name with their music. They met in the Washington DC session scene some years back and found that “flute and zouk” were a good instrumental match for what they love to play: traditional dance music from Ireland. Jigs and reels, polkas and hornpipes, the occasional slow air or song. Lilt loves and tries to capture the essentials of Irish traditional music: boundless energy, wildness and melancholy.  They perform regularly across the Mid-Atlantic region, with frequent appearances at concerts and festivals.  Their second CD, "Onward", has been highly praised in the Irish music press and is receiving radio airplay on traditional music programs in the US, Ireland, and Europe.
