Special Premiere Screening!

(2013) dir Maureen Gosling, Christopher Simon w/Chris Strachwitz, Ry Cooder, Richard Thompson, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal [92 min; Digital]
Roots music icon Chris Strachwitz is a detective of deep American music – music that’s the antithesis of the corporate “mouse music” dominating pop culture. Strachwitz is the legendary founder of Arhoolie Records, the label that brought rural American music out of the shadows and into the limelight. In the process, he changed music in the US – and the world – forever. From Texas to New Orleans, Cajun country to Appalachia, join a who’s who of roots music icons for a delightful hip-shaking romp, as Strachwitz continues his passionate quest for the musical soul of America.
