According to Pete Seeger , in various interviews, he first heard the word hootenanny in Seattle, Washington in the late 1930s. It was used by Hugh DeLacy’s New Deal political club [1] to describe their monthly music fund raisers. [2] After some debate the club voted in hootenanny , which narrowly beat out wingding . Seeger, Woody Guthrie and other members of the Almanac Singers later used the word in New York City to describe their weekly rent parties , which featured many notable folksingers of the time. [2] In a 1962 interview in Time , Joan Baez made the analogy that a hootenanny is to folk singing what a jam session is to jazz. [3]

At least for me, this takes the term "solo record" into some new and interesting areas, somewhat recontextualizing the idea of what constitutes a solo performance by a single musician. This project is the result of a lifelong dream in this area that dates back to my early youth.
