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, Lichfield, Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Morland, 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.

News Flash
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.

Tickets for my New Year's Eve Dance are now on sale.

You can read my notes on Dancing without Fear which I usd at Reelfolk this September.

All five of my albums of dance music are now available as MP3 downloads.
See my Books and Recordings page.

Dance Organiser version 5 has many new features to assist you when calling to recorded music and will convert men and women to larks and ravens if you wish.  Download a trial copy here.
