Hey Liars Bench fans. Thank all of you for coming out to the MHC last Thursday night. And for those who couldn't make it here's just a little of what you missed.
The debut of the new Liars Bench logo (Thanks to Nat & Joan Michelson);

Dave and Paul wearing new Liars Bench caps;
Paul opened up with "Knoxville Girl";
Curtis Blanton, famed local "Porch Tales" author, told a story about three hunters in a Church attic with a half gallon of white liquor during a revival.
The audience loved Curtis' "Tootin' on Gabriel's horn!"
Barbara Duncan's always a hit!
David Hirt enthralled the audience with stories of Cullowhee from the 1950s and 1960s.
Gary modeled a new 'look'
Gary, Curtis, and David Hirt all compare their storytelling honesty level.
Gary told a story about Uncle Frank's last ride.
Barbara rocked the house with "The Wreck of the Old 97" and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken"
Gary and Curtis, two of the most honest men that I know!

Thank you Liars Bench fans! Don't forget, there will be a special showing of The Liars Bench, Saturday September 24 at 1:30pm at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center (227.7129). I do believe that Mountain Heritage Day will never be the same!!!
