This Spring, naturalist and Mercury Prize-nominated folk artist Sam Lee and special guests bring the celebrated Singing With Nightingales starlit walks indoors. Live broadcasting the irrepressible nocturnal courtship song of nightingales, this series of unique concerts introduces human-bird duets in a new theatrical experience.

Presented by worldwide roots music promoter, The Nest Collective, these groundbreaking concerts weave a narrative of song and story concerning the nightingale's role in folklore, landscape and migration, overshadowed by their current alarming decline. Hear their song and its powerful effect while you still can.
