Thanks for visiting the Peter Aston website and welcome to the November 2019 update. The arrival of November means we'll soon be in Advent - and then Christmas! 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 delighted to present two programmes for Forest FM92.3, based in East Dorset. 'Forest Folk' is on air at 8.00 on Mondays, 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 7.00 I present '33 and a Third' which is an hour of classic and little-heard album tracks. Again this programme is available to listen-again on Mixcloud.
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!
