An enchanting evening about one of our most valued and precious birds. Sam Lee is a Mercury Prize-nominated folk singer, traditional music specialist, naturalist, curator and wilderness survival expert. He has written music for films and TV, including King Arthur and Peaky Blinders, and is a regular guest teacher on the Goldsmiths’ music degree programme. He was the first ever folk singer to teach at the Royal College of Music. Join him as he explores the ornithology of the nightingale: its habitat, characteristics and migration patterns, as well as the environmental issues that threaten its existence. Sam will also be performing.
