Hot Time at the 9th Annual Franklin Folk Festival!

It was hotter than all get out (in more ways than one) at the 9th Annual Franklin Folk Festival Saturday July 21.
Gary really wowed the crowd (the ones who didn't faint from no air conditioning!)
William Ritter held everyone spellbound with his singing.
William had a little help from a girl singer who came special to perform with him. She was the real deal too.
Paul had a wedding to go to but he recommended some boys that he played with in the Sweet Tater Band...
Ethan Fortner,
Wyatt Messer (he learned to play banjo from the late Benny Messer),
and Ethan's daddy.

The audience loved the "Tuckaseigee Boys."

Ernestine Upchurch, one of our storytellers in training, got up and told a story about Popcorn Sutton buying her a really nice gift with "liquor money."
Gary told the audience about his play and his latest book "Outlander."
Bodine is pretty sure that "Outlander" is coming to a venue soon west of the Balsams--stay tuned!
Despite the heat everybody went away happy.
Stay tuned 'cause we might do an unscheduled show somewhere around the area. The Liars Bench is in the process of working out its Fall schedule and it just might be surprising. There will be some BIG surprises with Gary coming soon also. But Bodine ain't telling ;)!/TheLiarsBench
