- Down Home Music
Store has been serving the San Francisco bay area for over 22 years
with an extensive selection of roots music from the U.S. and around
the globe. They began as an spin-off of Arhoolie Records in 1976 as
owner Chris Strachwitz saw the need to serve the community directly
with a storefront. Popularity of the compact disc, demand for world
music, and it's growing availability has fueled Down Home's expansion
to over 24,000 selections at present, yet never failing to keep pace
with the re-issue of traditional American roots music. We carry a large
selection of new and used vinyl, as well as music videos, books, plus
hard to find magazines. Available also are two listening booths provided
to preview your selections, so set aside some time when you visit!
We are also the exclusive U.S. distributor for Johnny Parth's Document
Records, from Austria, chronicling Old-Time music, pre-war American
blues and gospel with over 600 titles at present.
Also calling our building home is Flower Films, origin
of Mr. Les Blank's film creation efforts, including the acclaimed "Sprout
Wings & Fly" about legendary fiddler Tommy Jarrell.
