Time Out says

It’s getting difficult to keep track of all the living-room concerts being announced, but The Nest Collective has put together a doozy. Its ‘Singing with Nightingales’ YouTube concert has the Pet Shop Boys, Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn and Seth Lakeman on the bill.

The nighttime show will be hosted by folk singer Sam Lee and streamed live from a wood in Sussex, with speakers and musicians appearing from their homes. The idea is that each performance will act as a kind of ‘duet’ with the birds of the forest, inspired by cellist Beatrice Harrison, who played to the sound of nightingales for a famous BBC broadcast in 1924. 

Along with musicians, there will be appearances from presenter Chris Packham, actress Lily Cole and poet Simon Armitage. Did we mention the PET SHOP BOYS?
