Episode 2 of 72 Hours in Newport features Austin-based Americana troubadours, Band of Heathens! In this episode our confessor recounts some of his grandfather’s best stories – from coming to America in a barrel to wrestling a panther – Are they true? Are they false? Does it matter? Walker and Gordy Quist (of BOH) discuss the power of family origin stories and the making of “Black Cat.”
