Film Summary:

The story of Chris Strachwitz and Arhoolie Records - Featuring the Treme Brass Band, Big Mama Thornton, Flaco Jimenez, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Country Joe McDonald, Ry Cooder and many more. Roots music icon Chris Strachwitz is the guiding force behind legendary Arhoolie Records, bringing Cajun music out of Louisiana, Tex-Mex out of Texas, Blues out of the country – and into the living rooms of Middle America. American music and culture have never been the same. We join him for on a hip-shaking stomp from Texas to New Orleans, Cajun country to Appalachia, as he continues his passionate quest for the musical soul of America.  Today, at 80+, Chris’s enthusiasm has not waned. He’s an example to all of us of the riches following your personal vision can bring and how one person can literally change the world. 

Film Reviews:

“Smokin’ hot!”  Radio One, New Zealand

“I dare you not to tap your feet.”  - The New York Times

“Infectiously enjoyable.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“A Masterpiece!” - Bonnie Raitt

“A smorgasbord of some of the best music you’ll ever hear. This loving portrait of one of music’s great diggers, great finders, great protectors and champions, would be worth it for the music it serves up alone.”  - Off the Tracks
