WELCOME TO THE ARHOOLIE FOUNDATION

A nonprofit organization rooted in the life's work of its founder Chris Strachwitz and his acclaimed independent label Arhoolie Records. Our mission is to help keep blues, Cajun, zydeco, gospel, jazz, Tejano/Norteño, old-time, and other tradition-based styles of music alive and well through archival preservation, live performance, community and educational outreach, exhibits, public programming, and direct support to artists.
