The Arhoolie Foundation – a non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation, preservation and celebration of regional roots music – is proud to announce its second annual Arhoolie Awards and Benefit Concert, to be held November 22nd at San Francisco’s The Chapel. Proceeds from the event will help further the mission of the Foundation, which evolved out of legendary independent roots music label Arhoolie Records, whose iconic catalog was acquired by Smithsonian Folkways in 2016.

This year’s award recipients — who each receive $10,000 to support their work — are Linda Tillery, a singer, songwriter, producer, and activist recognized as a pioneer of women’s music; Cedric Watson, a Texas-born musician who breathes new life into the Creole music of Southwest Louisiana; and Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center, a longtime home of roots, folk, and world music. Rock & Roll and Blues Hall of Famer Elvin Bishop will be honored with a Chris Strachwitz Legacy Award.

Enjoy a night of down-home blues, soulful African diasporic music, and spirited gospel while celebrating the heritage of roots music. This event features live performances by Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio, Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir, and The Sons of the Soul Revivers.
