Singing with Nightingales
Early-bird tickets to Singing with Nightingales 2019 available until the end of this month
Sam Lee and the Nest Collective invite you to come to the forest, sit by the fireside and listen to intoxicating song, as some of the finest musicians in the land duet with the sweet sound of the nightingale. Immerse yourself in the folklore and ways of our native birds, savour the music of world renowned guest artists from folk, classical, world music, and jazz arenas.
Join them in a rare and thrilling journey as darkness falls upon the springtime woodlands of southern England.
You are invited not just to listen to these birds in ear-tinglingly close proximity, but to share an evening around the fire, delving into your hosts’ and guest musicians´ own funds of rare songs and stories.
Each night is hosted by naturalist and folk singer Sam Lee, who is joined by a very special guest musician. After a filling supper and fine drinking round the fire, the group of around 20 will walk in silence and darkness into the nightingale’s habitat, not only to listen to these majestic birds, but to share in an improvised collaboration; to experience what happens when bird and human virtuosi converge in musical collaboration.
