Thread Name: Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called?
Subject: RE: Oldtime Musicals . . . What Were They Called?
My family does that. We don't give it a name, we just do it. We have dinner or a picnic, then the guitar comes out and the singing starts.

It was the same for Bertie Wooster. After dinner, a damsel might sit at the piano and sing English folk songs. It just happened; it didn't need a name.
