Colin Hume: Home page
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
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've updated my Videos
page with some on-line videos at the bottom.
I've just published a rather large page containing my thoughts on What is a Dancing Master?
— feel free to dip into it if the whole thing is too much for you.
And another quite large page on Scottish Dances
— if you're a caller and you'd like some advice on how to call some great dances, please take a look!
I have some covid-related links on my Links
