ARHOOLIE FOUNDATION COLLECTIONS:The Arhoolie Awards
The Arhoolie Awards are a central piece of our commitment to celebrating roots music. This annual award, now in its fourth year, honors musicians, organizations, and individuals who carry on and uplift roots and regional music styles.
The Arhoolie Awards are neither applied for nor sought. Nominations are made by board members, friends, and experts in our field. Winners are chosen by the Arhoolie Foundation board of directors.
Recipients receive $10,000 with no obligations: this award is simply meant to encourage, support, and shine a light on extraordinary people and organizations, and to help them continue doing what they do.
