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 now completed Volume 5 of Squares from Northern Junket
You can now read the notes for my Dancing through the ages
class which I ran at Whitby Folk Week in August. I've updated the page to reflect (mainly) what I actually called.
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.”
