For forty years, Houston's legendary folk and acoustic music venue, Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant, has fostered and nurtured some of the most important musical performers and songwriters in America including Grammy Award-winning artists Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, and Lucinda Williams. Here, we learn how a devoted family of volunteers, patrons, and artists transformed a politically subversive little coffee house and restaurant into a unique music institution and cultural treasure.
