IN THE PRESS
"...fresh, exhilarating, and wonderfully, blissfully alive."
Reviews of Lilt's CD "X"
"...this is an achievement both for quality of the playing and the material. Don't be looking for a loan of it, either. Nobody would risk it. This is a Lilt with real fizz, platinum quality. Well done!! " - Irish Music Magazine (Dublin)
"Eck and Carr have a terrific rapport – the 10 years they’ve been playing together as a duo have clearly given them great insight into how to connect musically, and the way they show this on “Lilt X” is what gives the album its strength. ...“Lilt X” is a tuneful album that is a terrific reflection on a decade together. The music is sweet and is certain to delight fans of the band. Give it a spin! - The Irish Echo (NY)

"...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
"...one of the finest recordings of Irish music I've heard in a long time. The whole thing, from beginning to end, feels fresh, exhilarating, and wonderfully, blissfully alive." - IrishPhiladelphia.com
"These guys love their music and are not afraid to push their play into new territory and experiment with additional instruments... it really works and is a listening pleasure." - Irish Music Magazine (Dublin)
"...It’s a lovely album of unvarnished instrumental and vocal music ... from two of the DC scene’s finest, and is one trad fans should check out and enjoy."
- The Irish Echo (NY)
