Written by 

Storyteller and writer Gary Carden’s Liars Bench programs will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 23 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva and again at 6 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Waynesville Library.

Appearing this month are: Steve Brady, musician and actor, who will be telling the ghostly tale of the White Owl at High Hampton; Lloyd Arneach, who will tell the Cherokee myth of Spearfinger; Barbara Duncan, who will sing a few tragic ballads about doomed lovers; Paul Iarussi, who will do several ballads that date back to the 40’s; Dave Waldrop, who will perform song and dance; nd Carden, who will tell the wondrous tale of an Irish lad that lost his manhood and gained a family.

Arneach will not be at the Waynesville program, but Carden will recount the Spearfinger story.

The program is free, although a hat is passed. For information email Carden at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
