Silta played by Clive Williams and Mark Prescott

Mark and I played this in the garden for the Vaults Bar lockdown session (we’re still in Covid lockdown for those viewing this in 10 years time) – this is the first time we’ve been able to play together for 4-5 months. Despite being April, it snowed – you’ll see the snow at the end of the video… so this is all we got to play.

Silta was written by finnish accordion player, Markku Lepisto.
