This Ain't No Mouse Music

A new documentary about Chris Strachwitz , a “detective” of deep American music. Since 1960, he has been the guiding force behind legendary Arhoolie Records , bringing Cajun music out of Louisana, Tex-Mex out of Texas , blues out of the country – and into the living rooms of Middle America. Born a German count, Strachwitz fled his homeland after WWII at 16. Here, he discovered and shared a musical landscape that most Americans missed. He takes us 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.
