Lilt in Concert – An Evening of Irish Traditional Music and Dance

Tina Eck and Keith Carr with sean-nos dancers Shannon Dunne & Agi Kovacs.  Come celebrate midwinter (and get warm!) with a concert of great Irish traditional music.
Lilt is the DC-based duo of Tina Eck (flute, tinwhistle) and Keith Carr (bouzouki, banjo, mandolin, vocals). They are receiving acclaim for their spirited renditions of tunes and songs from the “pure drop” tradition — the Irish dance music consisting of jigs, reels, polkas, and hornpipes, and the occasional haunting slow air and ballad. It’s the music heard in pubs and homes all over Ireland and at Irish dances and social celebrations.  Keith and Tina are each known individually in the local community of Irish musicians, but when they discovered that they share musical tastes it seemed natural to team up and explore musical possibilities as a duo.  Since first getting together in 2009 they have played numerous concerts, festivals, and social events. Their first CD, “Lilt“, is in demand well beyond initial expectations, and they are now planning their next one.
For this show Keith and Tina will be joined by dancers Shannon Dunne and Agi Kovacs, along with additional surprise guests.
More information about Lilt, and the concert location, is at http://www.liltirishmusic.com.
The show will be held at the Cabin John Gardens Community House, 8 ½ Webb Rd Cabin John, MD 20818. Doors open at 7 pm. Admission $15.
