Songs from the Land is a collaborative project that celebrates musicians with a local connection to Teton Valley to evoke emotion, engage local communities and encourage support for land conservation in eastern Idaho.  Merissa’s song, These Hills, which was written about the importance of conserving open spaces, similar to those she grew up in, is included in the compilation.  She is joined by artists including Anne & Pete Sibley, Ben Winship, Michael Batdorf, and Margo Valiante among other local favorites.  All CD sales benefit the Teton Regional Land trust.  For more information about this collection of music, its contributors, and the mission of the land trust, visit their website.
