The Seattle Folklore Society begins the celebration of its 50th anniversary by presenting “This Ain’t No Mouse Music”, the new documentary film about Chris Strachwitz, the founder of Arhoolie Records. Following the film there will be a Q&A with the film makers, Maureen Gosling and Chris Simon, both former collaborators with Les Blank.

Before the film, at 12:45 PM, Jasen Emmons, EMP senior curator, will give a tour of the EMP Guitar Exhibit. Jasen will talk about the interaction between roots and rock. The tour will trace the development of American guitars from the 19th Century to the present. And we will get a look at the newly acquired Martin used by Woody Guthrie. Tickets for the special tour are limited and cost extra.
