50 Years of Arhoolie Records

   
 

July 4th, 2012 ~ There's lots to celebrate this 4th of July with American Routes. It's the 50th anniversary of Arhoolie Records and we're bringing the party to you. Live in concert from Berkeley, CA, Nick is joined on stage with the pioneering label's many admirers including Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Michael & David Doucet of Beausoleil, New Orleans' Treme Brass Band and sacred steel masters, the Campbell Brothers. We'll also chat with Arhoolie's founder, Chris Strachwitz about his passion for American roots music on record. It's an event not to be missed!
