Hey Liars Bench fans. Bodine and Gary wanted you to know that we have a special treat for you this Saturday June 9 in downtown Waynesville.
As part of the second-annual Appalachian Lifestyle Celebration the Liars Bench is going to play not one, but two free-admission performances for you inside Main Street Perks coffee shop (next to the old Whitman's Bakery, now City Bakery).
Our first performance starts at 1:00 pm, the second kicks off at 2:30 pm and Liars Bench regulars Gary Carden, host and storyteller;
Lloyd Arneach, master Cherokee storyteller and recipient of last year's WCU Mountain Heritage Award;
and William Ritter, old-time music vocalist and musician will perform. We think that you will love it. Oh, and by the way, there may be a mystery guest also (Bodine isn't tellin' who it is an' neither am I).
The best parking will probably be either in the town parking garage and/or in the city parking behind main street.
The Liars Bench is a live, authentic traditional Southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama, and folk arts presentation. Started in the summer of 2010 by Gary Carden, the show has been an audience pleaser from the very beginning. The Liars Bench promotes and showcases any and all aspects of Southern Appalachian culture.
The Liars Bench recognizes established artists and performers and encourages new talent also. Regular cast members include Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Paul Iarussi, William Ritter, Kim Barnes, and our mascot Bodine. The Liars Bench continues the grand tradition of true mountain folkways through down-home entertainment.
Bodine and the rest of us are lookin' forward to seein' you there!
