Liars Bench returns to WCUWritten by Admin
The Liars Bench, a Southern Appalachian variety show, will start at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1, at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center.
The Liars Bench was founded by Sylva writer and storyteller Gary Carden in June 2010, and the show’s cast presented monthly programs at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva during its first year. The ensemble gave its first performance in the Mountain Heritage Center auditorium in July.
With a theme of “Folklore, Lies and Tall Tales,” the upcoming show will feature Carden, voice artist David Hirt and author Curtis Blanton telling tales. Also performing will be show regulars Paul Iarussi, Barbara Duncan and Dave Waldrop.
The presentation is free, but donations will be accepted.
