Welcome to my web site. I'm Colin Hume, best known as a Folk Dance caller and composer. You may find me appearing at Halsway Manor
, Folk Camps
, Folk Festivals such as May Heydays
(formerly Eastbourne), Chippenham
, Southam and Whitby
, plus Dance Weeks in the States run by the Country Dance and Song Society
and the Bay Area Country Dance Society
. In my spare time I'm a programmer/developer (I wrote the computer version of The Clarkson Register for Clarkson Research Services
) and have built many web sites — see the Programming
section for more details.
I ran a session on Traditional English Dance
for the Mercian Callers' Forum in January.
Renata's garden was featured in the November issue of The English Garden
— a good article and good photos. If you missed it, I believe the article is going to be reprinted in 2020 in A year in the English Garden
though this link may well be wrong by then. Or you can come and see the real thing when we open for the National Garden Scheme
(NGS), on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, 13th April 2020, 2-5pm.
All five of my albums of dance music are now available as MP3 downloads.
