The Liars Bench To Be Broadcast on "Life in the Carolinas"


Folks, Thursday night's Liars Bench show was the tops.

Gary, Paul, Lloyd, and Barbara were there and the audience roared their approval for each and every one.

Guest artists Liz and A.J. Nance entertained with original songs about the mountains.

If you are on The Liars Bench email list and you read this blog on a regular basis then you pretty well knew who of our member artists were going to be there and that it was going to be another great Liars Bench show.

What you didn't know was that "Life in the Carolinas" host Carl White and a film crew from Western Carolina University were going to be there (and were) to film The Liars Bench for a mid-to-late November air date on the Charlotte based show.

The last word that the staff of The Liars Bench Gazette got was that The Liars Bench was slated for a whole broadcast of "Life in the Carolinas."
Who would have thought that at our first performance at Signature Coffee in Sylva back in June of 2010?

Thank you for your support Liars Bench fans.

We at The Liars Bench will continue to strive to bring you the most accurate cultural depiction of life in the Southern Appalachians in the most entertaining way possible.

Coming Thursday November 17, "Mighty Hunters of the Great Smokies" on WNCs only live, authentic Southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama, folk arts presentation--The Liars Bench.

Stay tuned for further details.

"Haints, Boogers, and Belled Buzzards" Liars Bench Show at Mountain Heritage Center


Liars Bench fans have we got a treat (no pun intended) for you this Thursday October 20 at 7pm at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center. Dr. Gary Carden presents "Haints, Boogers, and Belled Buzzards" on The Liars Bench, WNCs only live, authentic traditional Southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama, folk arts presentation.
Including Carden, other member artists scheduled to perform are Lloyd Arneach, Barbara Duncan, and Paul Iarussi. Guest artist William Ritter and at least one mystery guest artist are also slated to perform Southern Appalachian 'scary' in story and song--all on one stage.
Even though it won't be a full moon outside; inside the Mountain Heritage Center there will be enough haints, boogers, belled buzzards, native-American vampires (have you ever heard the story about the Raven Mocker?), and mountain murder to satisfy just about anybody (well almost anybody's) Halloween blood lust.
As always, admission is free. Please come early for a good seat.
Bodine, Gary, and the rest of the Liars Bench Bunch will be looking for you!
