Mercyland in session

Tonight is a special festive edition of the show, with the very best Christmas roots and country records from over the years.

Complementing the theme is a very special Nashville session from Phil Madeira and Amy Stroud, performing songs from the album Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us

A labour of love for Phil, the album features 12 new secular gospel songs, non-denominational but devotional, and performed by the likes of the Civil Wars, Emmylou Harris & Buddy Miller.
