St AGNES FOUNTAIN
Since their first get together to record the eponymous St Agnes Fountain album in 2001, the quartet of founder David Hughes, Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie, and 2009's BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Duo, Chris While and Julie Matthews, has brought musical invention and laughter to the star-dust atmosphere of the season year in and year out.
‘The Aggies’ recorded their tenth album, The Best of St Agnes Fountain Vol.2, in 2015, again combining new versions of classic Christmas carols, original compositions and one or two fun surprises.
Although St Agnes Fountain’s albums accompany the putting up of a thousand Christmas trees throughout Britain, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience. Indeed, as in previous years, tickets were already being sold for this year's tour as the curtain fell on last year’s.
This December, in their fifteenth year, they hope to bring audiences more of their sparkling musicianship, humour and heartful renditions of favourite Christmas tunes, both original and those we know so well (or thought we did).
Christmas, as they say, starts with St Agnes Fountain. Why not start yours at Huntingdon Hall on Wednesday 7th December…
