Bohème Waltz

This is a really gorgeous waltz, as played by french duo Pauline Caplier and Sylvain Letourneau who play as Bohème. I had thought they called themselves La Bohème, and as such could be shoehorned under the ‘tunes that start with L’ theme at melodeon.net this month… but no! Going to have to find another tune that does! Don’t know the real name of this tune, but fairly confident it was written by Pauline and Sylvain – they play their own compositions mostly.

See the original on their lovely concert on their facebook page, about half way through. https://www.facebook.com/studiolaclaranbox/videos/234447080967024/

Played on a Van der Aa Compact III in G/C.

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.

A quick recording for the virtual vaults session! My mate Dave Chatterley wrote this and posted a version of it on mandolin yesterday – great tune Dave!
