Croatian translation:hootenanny
Explanation:
hootenanny 1. An informal gathering of singers and musicians, similar to a jam or singaround; the word was popular in the 40s, 50s and 60s and was said to have been popularized by the Almanac Singers. The origin of the word is obscure. It predates its folk usage with the meaning of "gadget" or "thingmajig". Now rarely used, if at all. Sometimes spelled "hootnanny" or shortened to "hoot". 2. An ABC TV show in the early 60s, which caused a fuss among folkies by banning Pete Seeger (see blacklist).

Hvala Alz!
Malkice me hvata panika jer je tekst prepun takvih izraza koji su vezani isključivo uz specifično podneblje i kulturu (čas britansku, čas američku)... Sve će biti prepuno opaski prevoditelja... U svakom slučaju, hvala!

agree  Karen Ordanic: Slažem se da se ne prevodi. U Bujasovom rječniku stoji: koncert folk-muzike (obično pjeva i publika)
