More info about The Nightingales

For a few short weeks from mid April onwards a few thousand Nightingales annually fly to the southern UK from the Central African forests and can be heard, in a just few special locations, taking up sonorous residence after dusk. The male birds territorially serenade about the scrubs and field margins with their magnificent and highly venerated song. Folk singer, song collector and nature lover Sam Lee has built a reputation of celebrating this ‘very African bird’ with his annual sell out excursions. This year he invites you not just the chance to listen to these birds in ear tinglingly close proximity but to share his own fund of rare songs and improvised collaboration along with some very special guest musicians. Sam’s 2014 BBC Radio 4 documentary ‘Singing with the Nightingales’ was nominated for a BBC Radio Award in 2015 and this year he returns for a few special nights of immersive guidings offering a deeply wondrous, romantic and very potent experience like no other.
