I’d like to recommend the movie Be Here To Love Me (2005), a documentary about the late great Townes Van Zandt by director Margareth Brown. If you’re into Van Zandts music, this film is a must-see. Van Zandt was one of the most gifted new songwriters that grew up in the 60’s and he has left a mark on some of todays most influential artist of the country and americana genres.

Here is Nancy Griffith doing a great tribute to Townes playing one of my favourite songs, Tecumseh Valley:
