St Agnes Fountain – View tour dates
Last Christmas St Agnes Fountain completed their 12th consecutive sell-out tour. Since the band first came together in 2001, the quartet featuring founder David Hughes, Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie and 2009’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Duo Chris While and Julie Matthews, have brought musical invention and laughter to the star-dust atmosphere of the Christmas season. In 2011 they released a double cd Best Of album on Fat Cat Records which included new versions of classic Christmas carols, contemporary seasonal songs and original compositions.
Although the St Agnes Fountain albums accompany the putting up of thousands of Christmas trees throughout Britain, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing Christmas audience. Each year St Agnes Fountain are guaranteed to bring you more of their sparkling musicianship, humour and heartfelt renditions of favourite seasonal tunes both original and those you know so well (or thought you did). Christmas, as they say, starts with St Agnes Fountain. http://www.whileandmatthews.co.uk/aggie.php
