Simply put, the term HOOTENANNY is synonymous with FOLK SONG SINGING -- which covers a wide range of music and lyrics. FOLK SONGS are often defined as "SONGS OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and FOR THE PEOPLE!" Also, a social gathering or informal concert featuring folk singing and sometimes, dancing.
