The Liars Bench presents southern Appalachian fright tales at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center.
Thurs., Oct. 20, 7 p.m., The Liars Bench, a popular, acclaimed storytelling program, presents “Haints, Boogers, and Belled Buzzards” at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center auditorium. Member artists Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach,
Barbara Duncan, Paul Iarussi; guest artist William Ritter; and at least one mystery guest perform Southern Appalachian 'scary' in story and song on one stage.
Carden said “I saw the culture and tradition of my people, the people of the Southern Appalachians dying. I started The Liars Bench to showcase this unique piece of Americana, to keep it alive, and show newcomers to the mountains what our culture was, and is really like.”
“This is the second Halloween show we've done and I believe its going to knock your socks off. The Liars Bench, a fusion of culture and entertainment, 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 next presentation at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center will be Thursday November 17 at 7 pm with “Mighty Hunters of the Great Smokies.”
