Nightingales in a Sussex Wood -BBC Radio

Thought members and others might be interested in the following:

On the 7 May BBC from 00.30 to 03.30 Radio 3 will be broadcasting a Slow Radio experience – the sounds of Nightingales recorded in a Sussex wood this April. Four musicians spent the night in the woods responding musically to the sounds of nightingales led by folk singer and outdoorsman Sam Lee, who explains the migratory behaviour of the birds, the character of their songs, and the habitats they favour for singing.

The four soloists take turns to respond musically to the nightingales – Clive Bell (Japanese bamboo flute); Laura Moody (cello and vocal); Seckou Keita (kora harp); and Alice Zawadzki (violin and vocal).
