Silver Sepp is a creative multitalented singer, musician and poet descended from a long line of singers and storytellers going back 300 years in an Estonian fishing village called Treimani. He makes use of old traditions as easily as wearing a shirt, combining them with his special gift for singing in a way only he can. He is a self-made man with self-made instruments such as a nail harp and his grandfather’s bicycle wheel, which, in his hands sound utterly captivating along with his clarinet and voice, taking us to Estonia’s misty meadows and wild seaside, filling the hearts of the audience with sudden joy and the feeling of belonging together. During the concerts he is also making the audience sing along and even dance leading them into the grounded rhythms of ancient Estonian flatfoot-walze. He offers solo-concerts, workshops of making self made instrument and Estonian dance and songs as well as magical music-poetry concerts together with his wife a famous Estonian poetess Kristiina Ehin.
