A musical odyssey about two veteran musicians in search of what they call “music utopia”, It Was the Music features Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams; he’s from New York’s Upper East Side, she’s from rural West Tennessee.
After leading successful, separate careers since getting married thirty years ago, they decide to pack their instruments into their SUV, set out across America and attempt to make it as a musical duo. From small clubs to big music festivals, Larry & Teresa strike a chord in audiences everywhere they perform, playing their own songs for the first time and pursuing their passion for delivering riveting interpretations of American gospel, blues, country, and good old rock ‘n’ roll. It Was the Music is both a personal love story about two musicians devoted to each other and to the music they love, and a director’s love letter to a time when music brought people together in the halcyon days of the sixties and early seventies, a time when it seemed that it was the music that mattered.
