Chris and Julie are regulars with us each December as part of St Agnes Fountain. Last with us as a duo in Autumn 2014, when they gave an outstanding performance that was loved by all. Without doubt two of the most talented musicians on the circuit, who always show their true love of performing and audiences always leave having really enjoyed a night of great musicianship and superb material.
