Liar's Bench moves to WCU venue

Written by 

The Liar’s Bench has been adopted by the Mountain Heritage Center

The one-year anniversary of The Liar’s Bench will be held at 7 p.m. on June 4 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

The Liar’s Bench, started by Gary Carden, is a gathering of writers, storytellers, musicians and other artists who give informal performances for audiences in Jackson County.

The one-year anniversary show will feature Lloyd Arneach, the Cherokee storyteller; Paul Iarussi, a claw-hammer guitar specialist; and Carden, who will tell “Blow the Tannery Whistle.”

In July, The Liar’s Bench will move to the Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center auditorium and future programs will be held on Thursday nights. A “murder ballads” program is planned for the July show at the Mountain Heritage Center.
