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
, 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.
Renata's amazing garden will be open for the National Garden Scheme
on Bank Holiday Monday (August 26th) from 2 to 6 pm. I'll be driving back from Southam that morning just so that I can sit in the drive and take your money, so please come along. You can also buy a cup of tea and a slice of my famous lemon drizzle cake!
