Thanks for visiting the Peter Aston website and welcome to the October 2019 update. Well here we are, Autumn is officially here and the nights are starting to draw in - and the scary thing is that Christmas goodies have started to appear in the shops! Where has the year gone?
If you're visiting this site for the first time, a quick introduction - I'm Peter Aston, a Christian singer/songwriter and worship leader based at Holtwood Methodist Church which is a welcoming, evangelical church in an idyllic location near Wimborne, close to the south coast of England. As a member of HMB I also play guitar, sing and help to lead services at churches in and around Dorset The HMB flautist Becky Neale and I also give concerts in our local area - and occasionally much further away!
I'm also the caller/guitarist/singer for the Cottage Industry ceilidh band, a solo singer/songwriter and a medieval wandering minstrel known as Master Peter of Fayrewood. As a solo entertainer I appear at many retirement homes and day centres and for charitable and other events, singing everything from war-time sing-along classics, through the 50's & 60's pop songs to traditional and original songs.
For the past few years I've been doing my thespian bit as a member of the 'Open the Book' Team which takes dramatised, costumed and propped (if that's a word!) presentations of Bible stories into local 1st Schools - a tremendous privilage!
And finally, to complete the picture of my week, I also present two programmes for Forest FM92.3. 'Forest Folk' is on air at 8.00 each Monday evening, the programme streams at www.forestfm.co.uk and you can also listen-again from Tuesdays at www.mixcloud.com/ForestFolk/ And then on Friday evenings at 9.00 I present '33 and a Third' which is an hour of classic and little-heard album tracks.
