St. Agnes Fountain Return to Belper

Christmas, as they say, starts with……St Agnes Fountain…

The albums of St. Agnes Fountain accompany the putting up of thousands Christmas trees throughout Britain and around the globe as their reputation reaches further afield, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience.

The band gives Christmas songs a good, if respectful, kicking. They bring sparkling musicianship, humour and heartfelt renditions of your favourite Christmas tunes both original and those you know so well (or thought you did).

Great musical talent, wit and invention in the form of Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention) and Chris While and Julie Matthews (Radio 2 Folk Award winners). They have brought joy, laughter and a few tears to every concert performance for nearly two decades.

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

Chris While – vocals, guitar, bodhran, dulcimer, banjo, darbuka and percussion.

Julie Matthews  –vocals, piano, guitar, accordion and gazouki

Chris Leslie –  Fiddle, Mandolin, Tenor Guitar, Bouzouki, Ukulele, Banjo, Oud, Whistle and Native American Flute and anything else he can lay his hands on!!
