With civil rights and anti-war anthems scoring as chart hits, folk was the music that gave birth to the 1960s. ABC-TVs HOOTENANY dared to present folksingers to a mass audience "every Saturday night" and launched a craze that swept the nation. From LPs and magazines to movies and merchandise, the word "Hootenany" meant cash in the bank.

HOOTENANY guests included long-established folk stars like Josh White, up-and-comers like Judy Collins, and future pop-rock icons Carly Simon, Gene Clark (The Byrds), John Phillips and Cass Elliot (The Mamas & The Papas) and John Sebastian (The Lovin' Spoonful).

For the first time, the HOOTENANY story is told in full, with a comprehensive episode guide and dozens of rare photos
