M-W and OED have 1929, and in a gadget sense. The music comes later.
31 March, 1921. Newark(OH) Advocate. page ?, column 2. (In an article
detailing the schedule of the Dennison University Glee Club):
<<Five members will present a comedy sketch, written by Robert
Abernathy, entitled "The King of the Hootenanny.">>
I suppose this could be a musical sense or the gadget sense. Perhaps
Dennison would have something in their files?
