The soulful Austin rock group Band of Heathens was founded by songwriters Colin Brooks, Gordy Quist and Ed Jurdi, who were nominated for "Best Duo or Group" by the Americana Honors & Awards in 2009. The band's debut CD was produced by a longtime friend of Mountain Stage, Ray Wylie Hubbard, who first told host Larry Groce about the group.

On the band's second studio album, One Foot in the Ether, the trio showcases a soul-drenched, guitar-heavy style of country-rock. The group, which performed at Lollapalooza last year, appears here on Mountain Stage for the second time.

Mountain Stage pianist Bob Thompson finishes this segment with a rendition of "This Little Light of Mine."

This segment originally ran May 25, 2010.
