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
, 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.
Every website has a Coronavirus
page these days! Mine gives a link to some one-person dances and a quiz for callers.
Genni and Darren Grainger have now taken over Folk Sales from Derek and Ann Appleing.
See their Facebook page: facebook.com/ Folk-Sales-UK-111488120439353
or email them:
Genni and Darren play in the band “Orion's Ring” with Genni's father Steve Hunt, often with Genni's mother Rosemary Hunt as caller.
Renata's garden was featured in the November 2019 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. But inevitably the Open Garden scheduled for Easter Bank Holiday Monday, 13th April 2020 has been cancelled.
This website is now sponsored by The Country Dance and Song Society.
“CDSS connects and supports people in building and sustaining vibrant communities through participatory dance, music, and song traditions that have roots in English and North American culture.”
