"This is a Lilt with real fizz, platinum quality.  Well done!!"

- Irish Music Magazine, September 2019

lilt noun  \ˈlilt\  1: a spirited and usually cheerful song or tune   2: a rhythmical swing, flow, or cadence   3: a springy buoyant movement.

“Lilt” -- a duo consisting of Tina Eck on flute and whistle and Keith Carr on bouzouki and banjo -- are trying to impersonate all of the aforementioned definitions of their name with their music.

They play the traditional dance music from Ireland:  jigs and reels, polkas and hornpipes, the occasional slow air or vocal number.  Lilt loves and tries to capture the essentials of Irish traditional music:  boundless energy, wildness and melancholy.
