Singing With Nightingales: Homecoming
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Celebrate the return of the nightingales with this special late-night live broadcast.
Join us on a journey deep into the Sussex woods, and discover the unmistakable sound of the nightingale.
On 12th April folk singer and author of ‘The Nightingale’ Sam Lee will be nestled in the nightingale’s habitat, beaming this live broadcast to you as the nightingale begins his famous mating call.
This audio pilgrimage will weave in a series of remarkable duets with the nightingale’s song, including invited special guests and public offerings, as we mark this special moment in the calendar with extraordinary music. We’re delighted to bring the magic of music and nature to you in the comfort of your own home.
This special broadcast is available for free – don’t forget to book your online ticket! We will be asking listeners to consider supporting us with a donation during the show.
Please note: All live stream events are subject to change. Not all events listed are live performances by the artist - they also include archived concerts, DJ sets, masterclasses, Q&As and more.
