Last Thursday night at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center the Liars Bench Show member artists Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Paul Iarussi; special guest artists Laurence Holden and Eric Young; plus an “exciting collection of new entertainers” (including multi-talented William Ritter) performed Southern Appalachian story, song, and poetry on one star-studded stage.
William Ritter played one of Aunt Samantha's (Jackson County native) songs called "Goin' to Italy" (Swain County).
Gary "depressed the audience a little bit" with a story about "Rogues Cove" (Rhodes Cove) were he grew up and his Grandmother 'training' him to keep her out of the nursing home.
Liars Bench audiences are the best in the world.
Coming up, the next presentation of The Liars Bench at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center will be Thursday February 16 at 7 pm. As a center piece of the show look for one of Gary's plays "Coy" to be presented. Coming soon “The Balsam Chronicles.”
