GIG DIARY

St Agnes Fountain

Sunday 4th December 2011

Canterbury Cathedral Lodge


ST AGNES FOUNTAIN is the labour of love of four of modern acoustic music's brightest (Christmas) lights - singer/songwriter David Hughes, Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie and respected female duo Chris While and Julie Matthews.

The St Agnes Fountain oak grew from the acorn of a limited edition Christmas EP released in 1998 by Hughes and Leslie. Well received for its infectious and imaginative reworking of traditional carols and tunes, the two protagonists decided it would be great craic to expand the project and rope in a few pals - and St Agnes Fountain was born.

A tour followed in 2001 which turned into a sell-out. They have toured every year since then to the delight of an ever-growing and faithful following.

Their signature is a rhythmic approach to traditional carols complemented by original seasonal compositions from each member of the band.

The show is a joyous event; the carols evoking their audiences "greatest hits". Add to that the humour of their live performances and it soon becomes obvious that "Christmas doesn't start till you've seen St Agnes..."

”What a fantastic night. St Agnes Fountain really got the Christmas festivities underway. As we left the concert the Cathedral lights were on and there was a frost in the air. Just perfect"

This will be their fourth concert for Folk in the Barn, Canterbury – its fast becoming part of our Christmas tradition
