This Ain't No Mouse Music!

If you like your music bland, removed from its roots, and commercialized, don't come here! Chris Strachwitz passionately dedicated his life and his label, Arhoolie Records, to recording the most authentic roots music he could find all over America. Searching out the true blues, Cajun, hillbilly country, Tex-Mex and New Orleans R&B performers in bars, churches, prisons and farms, he built a legacy of glorious sound that jumps out and grabs us. It is music as down-to-earth as the mud on your gumboots, and as sublime as a Salt Spring sunset. And Strachwitz's own eccentricities make the story as interesting as the sounds.
