Thanks for visiting the Peter Aston website and welcome to the May 2019 update - Easter is past, Bank Holidays approach, the longer daylight hours are here and summer must be just around the corner!  

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 'Forest Folk' for Forest FM92.3 which 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/
