For The Sake of the Song: The Story of Anderson Fair
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.
