Peppered with dark and cutting lyrics directed at an unwelcome visitor, Sarah Jarosz's song "House of Mercy" might suggest otherwise, but the tune she co-wrote with friend Jedd Hughes for her new LP Undercurrent actually has its origins in a place of worship.
Sarah returns to Mountain Stage this week with songs from her new album Undercurrent. Click here to listen to her live performance of "House of Mercy."
The show also features Robbie Fulks, Over the Rhine, The Black Lillies, and Steve Forbert.
