Details

Fire Station Folk Roots & Acoustic.

“Rhythmed-up” carols and Christmas music, interspersed with laughter and spoken word.

St Agnes Fountain come together for one month a year; ‘the Christmas Tour’ each December.

Founder member, David Hughes, and Chris Leslie originally released an EP of six tracks, “Acoustic Christmas” on guitar and mandolin in 1998. It sold out in three months and that was that but there was a clamour for more and, together with their friends, Chris While and Julie Matthews, they produced their first album, “St Agnes Fountain” in 2001. Not content with the album, the While & Matthews team organised a tour in December of that year and the response was overwhelming. The same reaction has greeted the band every year since with appearances on Radio 2 and other stations. Concert tickets are hot property.

It is the season their legion of fans have been waiting for because, as they say, “Christmas starts with St Agnes Fountain”.
