St. Agnes Fountain are about to embark on their 18th sell-out Christmas tour. Since the group’s first recording of the eponymous St Agnes Fountain album in 2001, founder member David Hughes, Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie and BBC Folk Awards Best Duo 2009, Chris While and Julie Matthews, have brought musical invention and laughter to the stardust atmosphere of the season. They have now released twelve treasured albums; eight studio albums and two live CDs as well as a couple of ‘Best Of ’ albums, but it is, without question their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience (tickets were actually being sold for this year’s tour as the curtains fell last year).
They hope to bring you this December, more of their sparkling musicianship, humour and heartfelt renditions of your favourite Christmas tunes both original and those you know so well (or thought you did!).
