Hootenanny (UK TV series)


Hootenanny (UK TV series)

"Hootenanny" is an annual New Year's Eve music show presented by Jools Holland as an off-shoot of his "Later with Jools Holland" series. It is broadcast between 11pm and around 1am every 31 December in the UK on BBC2.

The show generally features a wide variety of musical acts from various genres (as with "Later"), who perform both before and after midnight. All the guests (drawn from across the world of showbusiness) and other guest audience members present, and the artists themselves, get involved in the Hogmanay party atmosphere and there is a countdown to the midnight start of the New Year, followed by a traditional rendition of "Auld Lang Syne", often with a kilt wearing military marching band, replete with bagpipes. Among the regular events of the evening is the spot where Holland asks actor and comedian Rowland Rivron his predictions for the year ahead/his New Year's resolutions.

The title of the show is a misnomer, as a is an informal festive performance by folk singers, often with audience participation using acoustic instruments.

Pre-recording

Some claim that the show deceives viewers into thinking that the show is broadcast live, but the BBC itself has admitted that the show is not broadcast live and is instead "an idealised New Year's Eve party with a line-up that would surely be impossible to deliver on December 31" [ [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/showbiz/showbiznews.html?in_article_id=506200&in_page_id=1773 Viewers' fury at "live" New Year's Eve show - Daily Mail] ] .
