Lilt's newest CD, "X" (July 2019), marks our tenth year together --hence the "X"! The album presents a collection of Irish traditional and contemporary tunes in a variety of forms -- jigs, reels, set dances, polkas, airs. We are joined by a guest lineup that includes some of the very best Irish musicians in America: Billy McComiskey on accordion, Donna Long on piano, Josh Dukes and Zan McLeod on guitar, Seán Heely, Philippe Varlet, and Peri Leighty on fiddle, Jim Stickley on bodhran, and Sean-nos steps from champion dancer Kate Bole ...plus an appearance by renowned klezmer clarinet wizard Seth Kibel!
"This is a Lilt with real fizz, platinum quality. Well done!!"
- Irish Music Magazine (Dublin), September 2019
"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."
