From Apr-May, in the woodlands of Sussex & Kent, and live from the concert hall, award-winning folk artist, Sam Lee invites audiences to experience a unique collaboration between musician and bird, and a rare opportunity to hear one of the UK’s rarest birds sing its courtship song from its summer home.
In Lewes, Sussex, and Green Farm Kent, small groups will take a magical walk under the night sky, after a fireside supper & storytelling, guided into the nightingales’ habitat by wilderness experts, where world-renowned musicians will collaborate live with the birds; dates & artists
Audiences further afield will also able to share this experience, as SWN: LIVE comes to venues across the UK, including The Southbank Centre, hosted by Sam Lee & featuring special guests Kadialy Kouyate & Donal Kearney. Birdsong will be transmitted live into venues from the woods, whilst Sam & special guest artists collaborate live on stage, providing an increasingly rare opportunity to hear the birds song.
