Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

The Liars Bench

“An Authentic Traditional Southern Appalachian Storytelling, Music, Poetry, Dramatic, and Folk Arts Live Variety Show”

 

Host of The Liars Bench announces eleventh show at City Lights Bookstore, Sylva.

 

Liars Bench Southern Appalachian variety show to play a “moonshining in the mountains” presentation at local Sylva bookstore.

 

Sylva, February 27, 2011—Celebrating “moonshining in the mountains,” The Liars Bench, Western North Carolina’s own Southern Appalachian live variety show plays City Lights Bookstore Saturday March 12 at 7:00 pm for the show’s eleventh time. Marion Jones, Jack Parris, Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Barbara Duncan, Steve Brady, and Paul Iarussi will be performing at this March 12 “white lightening” show. Gary Carden, a noted local folklorist and storyteller, will give a special introduction to a short segment of “Prince of Dark Corners”, the story of Louis Redmon, a famous Jackson County ‘moonshiner.’ Marion Jones and Jack Parris will demonstrate with an authentic ‘still’ how the old timers made (some still do) “white liquor.” Steve Brady will relate, in story and song, the strong ties between the moonshining industry and the beginnings of NASCAR. Admission is free.

 

Dave Waldrop, The Liars Bench host, said “this show is definitely going to be a unique cultural event and an opportunity for the audience to learn about our southern mountain history. I wouldn’t be in the least surprised to see a revenuer or two.”

 

Regular cast members include Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Paul Iarussi, Barbara Duncan, Dave Waldrop, Steve Brady, and the show’s mascot Bodine. The Liars Bench recognizes established artists and performers and encourages new talent also. The Liars Bench has been a crowd pleaser from the very first show in June of 2010 promoting any and all aspects of Appalachian culture.

 

The Liars Bench creator Gary Carden said “from the very first The Liars Bench has been on the cutting edge blending authentic traditional Southern Appalachian culture with entertainment for children and adults—no matter where they come from. The Liars Bench strives, and succeeds, in giving an accurate view of the people and their culture here in the southern mountains.”

 

 

The Liars Bench was started in the early summer of 2010 by Gary Carden to promote Southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama, and folk arts.
