Welcome to my website !
A little about me....
Hi, I'm Sue Holton, I live in the extreme South East of England with my husband Mike. We have two adult sons, Ross and Jason.
Ross and his wife Sara have two beautiful daughters Phoebe and Lily. Our other son, Jason lives with his wife Sarah and baby son Jaxon.
Mike and I are both keen music fans and amateur photographers, and this multi purpose website has been designed to combine and showcase our Work and Leisure interests.
In 2005 I took a Certificate of Higher Education course in European Business at Canterbury Christ Church University which I passed with Distinction.
After that I worked for the University as an IT Assistant for three years. This involved working with adults on similar courses to help them improve their IT skills.
When that ended I worked at the Defence Fire Training & Development Centre for a year, unfortunately government cutbacks meant they were unable to renew my contract. After a time back working at Christ Church University, this time in the library at Canterbury, I am once again concentrating on working from home and making time to do what I enjoy most, music, photos and websites.
I am lucky enough to be able to combine my passion for music with work in several ways and I am currently devoting more time to my website work. I work with Boston company SlabMedia to set up and run websites - my first was for acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap.
I am also the booking agent for exclusive private concerts by both Gordon Giltrap and Raymond Burley. Go to the Work Module for more information.
The success of the Gordon Giltrap website led on to requests from other artists and businesses to set up sites for them and I have since completed several others using the same system. (See the Work pages for more info) I thought it about time that I moved my own site over to Slab too, hence this site.
Mike and I especially love acoustic guitar music and Celtic style fiddle playing, so our friends Gordon Giltrap, Cathryn Craig and Brian Willoughby, Strawbs, Keith Pearson's Coup De Grass and Ian Cutler ( Hot Rats ) will no doubt feature heavily in the Leisure pages as the site grows.
I also enjoy singing with Glee Club UK. You can read about our Abbey Rd recording session HERE
Elsewhere on the site you will find a selection of my photos in the Photo Gallery and the stories behind them. The Leisure module is the fun part of the site, aimed at friends, family, and other fans of the musicians featured, there is something there for everyone, and everyone is welcome ! The site is always changing, so visit often to see what's new.
