About Blue Bhikku Records

Jack Kerouac stayed in Tucson when he was 'on the road' with Neal Cassady in the late '40s. His spirit and the spirit of the beat poets of that period returned to Tucson in the early '90s, when a couple of bhikkus (that is, spiritual seekers) started a record label to focus on Southwestern songwriters and acoustic music.

The mission of Blue Bhikku is to make the acoustic music of Southwestern songwriters available to listeners and bring the spirit of the Southwest forward. The music distributed by Blue Bhikku Records is filled with the stories of the cities, the highways, the cowboys, and the deserts of the Southwest.
