Biography: Lilt is a duo that plays Irish traditional music in the "pure drop" manner. That is, they play the music that is heard in pubs all over Ireland, at Irish dances and ceilis, and at social celebrations. Tina Eck and Keith Carr are both prominent players in the Washington DC area; the pair met several years ago in the Irish session scene in Washington, and began performing as a duo. Their music is played with passion and virtuosity, and covers the genre's full range of expression, from lively reels and jigs to haunting airs. Keith plays the ten-string Irish bouzouki, tenor banjo, and mandolin, and he sings. His musical background includes many years as a performing guitarist, plus extensive classical training in trumpet and piano. In addition to performing, he teaches bouzouki, banjo, mandolin, and bodhrÓn, and is on the faculty of the Washington Conservatory of Music program at Glen Echo Park. Tina, the recipient of a 2011 Maryland State Arts Council grant for solo world music performance, plays the Irish wooden flute and tinwhistle. She has performed at countless sessions, festivals, dances and concerts in the Washington area. She has traveled to Ireland frequently and has learned technique and repertoire from some of the best traditional flute players in Ireland and the USA.
