Sam Lee’s Singing With Nightingales: LIVE

This Spring, the Mercury Prize-nominated folk artist Sam Lee is bringing his much celebrated Singing With Nightingales events indoors.


This highly unique event will take place in a relaxed, low lit, setting – cleverly interweaving live broadcasting direct from the countryside with songs and stories from Sam and his guests, celebrating nature and the nightingale’s acclaim in folklore, myth and world culture.


A live feed will give audiences the opportunity to hear wild nightingales performing their magical courtship arias, witnessing a one-off collaboration between the human musicians on stage and one of Nature’s finest voices.   


Combined the elements will create a thrilling, uplifting and never-to-be-forgotten experience.

The event is produced by the award-winning music promoter The Nest Collective, which has been staging Singing With Nightingales in wild woodland settings since 2015.  Previous seasons have been profiled on the BBC’s Breakfast television show, Radio 4’s Today and on Countryfile. The field concerts have also been very favourably reviewed by many newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, Telegraph, Times and Observer.


Singing with Nightingales LIVE is supported by Arts Council England.
