In case you’re curious, Hootenanny is another word for a “Hoedown,” but if that doesn’t clear things up here’s what Wikipedia has to say: In this usage it (Hootenanny) was synonymous with thingamajig or whatchamacallit, as in: "Hand me that hootenanny." Hootenanny was also an old country word for "party". Nowadays the word most commonly refers to a folk music party with an open mic, at which different performers are welcome to get up and play in front of an audience.
