Lilt: Irish Traditional Music

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 8:00pm

Lilt is a traditional Irish folk duo currently touring the North East.

Tina Eck plays the Irish wooden flute and tinwhistle. Originally from Germany and now working as a Washington-based radio news correspondent, she discovered her passion for Irish traditional music in a local pub in Washington DC in the 1990’s.

She has since performed at countless sessions, festivals, dances and concerts, including such notable venues as the Irish Embassy and the Kennedy Center. She has traveled to Ireland frequently and has learned technique and repertoire from some of the best traditional flute players in Ireland and the U.S.

Keith Carr plays the ten-string Irish bouzouki  (aka “cittern”) and tenor banjo. After a long career as a senior manager and consultant for conservation organizations, he is now doing what he loves best: performing and teaching traditional music.

His musical background includes extensive classical training in trumpet and piano, plus many years as a performing guitarist.  In addition to performing, he teaches bouzouki and banjo; he is on the faculty of the Washington Conservatory of Music and also gives private lessons. http://www.liltirishmusic.com/lilt-about.html
