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.
From 2019 this website is 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.”
