Chris Strachwitz in the New York Times

Laurie Lewis (USA) notes in her latest e-newsletter that she will be taking part in commemorating the 50th anniversary of Arhoolie Records on this coming weekend, and celebrating the life's work in many forms of Americana music of the label's founder, Chris Strachwitz, whom Laurie calls

a truly remarkable man whose quirky musical tastes have really made a difference in my life.

The newsletter also gives a link to a recent New York Times article by Larry Rohter about Chris Strachwitz, born in Germany (1931) into an aristocratic family as Count Christian Alexander Maria Strachwitz.
