‘The Sweet Nightingale’, or Roud 371, is a traditional song from Cornwall. In this episode we discuss it in the company of ballad singer, Jackie Oates, looking at where it came from, who sang it originally, who collected it and how it continues to be a popular song in the West of England to this day. Jackie even gives us a bit of a singing lesson. Get stuck in.
