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.
Stay tuned for further details.
