Cowboy Junkies were in the midst of recording 'Renmin Park' for what became the 'Nomad Series' when they heard of the sad death of Vic Chestnut on Christmas Eve 2009.
Vic had toured with and supported the band on a number of occasions and their immediate reaction was to produce an album that was a tribute to him and his songs.
'Demons' was the upshot and from that album, in this episode Michael Timmins and Alan Anton discuss Vic's song 'Supernatural' and the joys and challenges of covering material by someone just as idiosyncratic as Vic Chesnutt.
