Sam Lee's Singing with Nightingales

Folk music star Sam Lee is known for his outdoor, starlit ‘Singing with Nightingales’ concerts.

In these unusual events he collaborates with both nightingales and special guest musicians.

Singing with Nightingales: Live sees the nightingales’ courtship song broadcast live into venues where Lee and guest musicians collaborate from the auditorium.

Sam Lee’s spoken and sung narrative creates a guided imaginatory forest walk, drawing audiences into the lore of the woods with transporting folk songs and guest musicians.

This meditative journey is accompanied by immersive lighting and a live audio feed of the evening chorus as it fades to silence, followed by the signature duet as performers join with the birds’ after-dark song.
