What is a homeland evening?

Presentation of local folk music and local customs by local amateurs as part of a full-length event for tourists. The preferred name in Tyrol, Austria's most important tourist destination, is Austria evening. The programme serves the alleged or believed self-portrayal of the folk culture of a place, a region, through traditional costumes, dances, pieces of music, songs, yodels and scenic representations. Due to the "presentation of traditionally and functionally defined elements of folklore outside their local or estates community, the playful imitation of folk motifs in a different social class, and the invention and creation of folksy elements determined by various purposes away from a tradition" (Moser), the H. can be attributed to the phenomena of so-called "folklorism" (folklore), which are much discussed among folklorists and local historians alike.
