Peter is mainly known for his CDs of songs for justice and peace ... and songs used in church liturgies and religious education. In recent years he has also made DVDs after walking two 700km+ sections of the pilgrimage paths known as the Camino de Santiago (to the burial place of St. James the Apostle).

Each DVD goes for about 85 minutes Ė combining music with Peter's narration and photographs. Beautiful landscapes, old villages and towns, interesting pilgrims. Useful information on Camino practicalities.

1. WALKING THE CAMINO (Spain). St. Jean Pied-de-Port to Santiago.
The most popular route. Peter's first Camino DVD.

2. ULTREIA - a CAMINO in FRANCE. Le Chemin de St. Jacques.
Le Puy to St. Jean Pied-de-Port. A new DVD.
Peter walked this route last year. Fewer people walk the French path but it is just as ancient, interesting and beautiful.

"Easily the best account of the Camino Iíve seen. Peterís selection of music, his language and voice accompany a brilliant array of photos". (John Dawson)

"Peter has a great eye for a photo, and a wonderful way of conveying meaning in word and picture". (Richard)

In the live Camino shows, Peter provide commentary while photos and music are played from a large-screen television. At conclusion there is a ten-minute Q&A session. Previously there have been many of these live presentations in quite a spread of locations - the Southern Highlands, Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and Canberra. Peter is happy to receive invitations for further presentations in 2016. He brings my own large screen television. All that's needed is a suitable venue - eg large room, small hall or chapel.  He limits seating to around 35 per session so that all attending have a good view of the screen. Invitations welcome via email: camino

This is the 'small scale' version that has been developed through over a hundred performances in Australia, Ireland and the U.K. Narration by Peter. The atmosphere is intimate, focused, the sound crystal clear.  It includes interesting new stories about Francis.
