Post subject:  Irish trad duo Lilt celebrates 10 years with new CD "Lilt X"

“Lilt X" is a celebration and the 4th CD from the Irish traditional duo Lilt: Tina Eck (flute, tinwhistle) and Keith Carr (bouzouki, tenor banjo, mandolin). The release marks Lilt's 10th year together — hence the “X"! The X also stands for our mystery tune “The Unknown Reel”. A tune which Tina found scribbled on a piece of staff music paper. We have - so far - not been able to locate the composer or origin of this lovely melody. The mystery continues: if any of you know where this tune comes from, please contact us at This anniversary album presents a collection of Irish traditional and contemporary tunes in a variety of forms -- jigs, reels, set dances, polkas, airs. You’ll hear 16 tracks of new music, you’ll recognize the classic ‘Lilt sound’, but you’ll also meet some familiar friends. Lilt invited some of the best Irish musicians in America for selected tracks: Billy McComiskey on accordion, Donna Long on piano, Josh Dukes and Zan McLeod on guitar, Sean Heely, Philippe Varlet, and Peri Leighty on fiddle, Jim Stickley on bodhran, Sean-nos steps from champion dancer Kate Bole., an appearance by renowned klezmer clarinet wizard Seth Kibel.
