On the Stewart Fenwick Celtic Country programme this week, Stewart talks to Australian bluegrass performer Karen Lynne and will be playing tracks from her new gospel album “Shine Your Light”.

For this album, Karen travelled to Tennessee to record the album in Tom T Hall’s studio.

Karen says: “This was truly the best recording experience I have ever had and we are going to try our hardest to get back there in a few years and do it all again. Taking producer role this time was Jerry Salley who, even though he was snowed under with all the promotional stuff from his own new release, he still found time to fit me in. I have never seen a producer work so hard, he gave 300%, did whatever it took, stayed as late as he needed to.”
