BONUS: Mark Robertson of Prayer Flags and The Ragamuffin Band

Bassist, song-writer, and producer Mark Robertson is a legend as far as we are concerned here at Between the Songs. Not only was he a member of Rich Mullins' Ragamuffin Band and the lead singer of This Train, but he also recorded the Canticle of the Plains and Mitch McVickers' first solo album. Finally, we invite you to even try to keep up with all the various acts he has played with over the years (Legendary Shack Shakers, The Eskimo Brothers, Altar Boys, Derek Hoke, and more...). Robertson has just released an album with his new band Prayer Flags and so we decided to take the opportunity to talk about the new music, his long history in the music business, and his time with Mullins. Although today's bonus episode features some of his reflections on Mullins a majority of that section of our interview will air on future episode of Between the Songs.
