New Studio Album to be released in December St Agnes Fountain come together for one month a year; the Christmas Tour each December. Performing “rhythmed-up” carols and Christmas music, interspersed with laughter and spoken word, they begin their 16th sell-out year on 2nd 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. St Agnes Fountain will take their brand new studio album, their 9th,on the road in December. It is the season their legion of fans have been waiting for because, as they say, “Christmas doesn’t start till St Agnes Fountain”.
