For the last 25 years, the Arhoolie Foundation has worked to further the vision set by Chris Strachwitz, the founder of Arhoolie Records, to celebrate the great music created by artists committed to traditions and culture of their communities. From blues, Cajun, folk, gospel, jazz, Tejano/Norteño, and other types of old-time music, the Arhoolie Foundation has preserved decades of music, interviews, photos, and posters. We have created films celebrating musicians and musical traditions. We have created exhibits and presented outstanding live performances to showcase their history and highlight the current vitality of these musical traditions. Our Arhoolie Awards recognize the leading lights of roots music and provide direct support to artists.
Your support ensures that we can continue our outreach and share the stories that made this music with new generations of listeners. These musical traditions have always been supported by the community of people that care about them. Please join us as a member of the Arhoolie Foundation community and the music, artists, and traditions we all love.
