The marriage of television director Ted Glover and television producer A.G. Bannister has gone on the rocks because she has permitted her career to take precedence over romance. The horror of it all! Complications also arise because of a romance between Ted's agent, Steve Laughlin and a performer, Billy-Joe Henley, with a touring Hootenanny group. The resolvement comes when A.G. realizes that love is more important than a career - dang tootin' it was in a Sam Katzman movie in the 60's - but not before the likes of guest stars The Brothers Four, Sheb Wooley, Johnny Cash, The Gateway Trio, Judy Henske, George Hamilton IV, Joe & Eddie, Cathie Taylor and (Bob's boy) Chris Crosby work up a sweatin' storm trying to create a craze for "Hootenanny".

People watch these kind of movies to see the entertainers not a good story
It's hard to understand why other reviews are hung up about a plot to this movie.Back in the 1950's and 60's when these sort of movies came out with various singers people wern't saying " I hope the movie has a good story" or "Gee the story wasn't very good".Persons went to see the entertainers in this movie not a plot.When this movie came out I didn't care for folk music so I didn't go see it,simple,the thought never entered my mind maybe the movie has a good story and maybe it should be viewed.With a name like Hootenanny it's easy to figure this was no J.D. flick with cats and chicks boppin.Only recently have I viewed this movie and it was what I expected ...people singing folk songs,no drama,no potential Oscar nominations just folk singers...Aside from that a point of interest would be Ruta Lee also Judy Henske.Not much of a fan of Janis Joplin,after hearing Henske sing her second song in this movie I'd say Joplin is a clone of Henske but was more popular for some reason.
