Editorial Reviews

For over forty years, Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant has quietly cultivated some of the most notable songwriters and performers in America, including Grammy Award-winning artists Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett and Lucinda Williams. What began as a little neighborhood restaurant in Houston where freethinkers gathered "to talk about things that might get them arrested somewhere else" slowly evolved into a songwriting sanctuary. "Without Anderson Fair, I wouldn't have been driven to try to write songs the way I was," reveals Lovett.

For The Sake Of The Song paints a lively portrait of this legendary establishment that weaves together a musical and visual tapestry of five generations of artists, volunteers, and patrons who have fashioned this improbable tale.

Funny and deeply in love with the troubadour tradition, the film features intimate and entertaining interviews with a who's who of Texas and Americana music and presents new and rare archival footage of performances by Vince Bell, Guy Clark, Slaid Cleaves, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Steven Fromholz, Nanci Griffith, Carolyn Hester, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Shake Russell, Eric Taylor, Dave Van Ronk, Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams and more.

Ultimately, For The Sake of the Song celebrates the spirit of community and reminds us of the impact a small group of dedicated people can make when they work together for something they love.
