A segment of the Jackson County variety show “Liars Bench” will be shown on WMYA My40 at 2 p.m. on Jan. 15.
The show was filmed by Carl White, a Charlotte-based journalist whose regular shows are called “Living in the Carolinas.”
The Liars Bench, billed as a Southern Appalachian variety show, has featured several regional artists at previous performances including storytelling by Gary Carden and Lloyd Arneach, poetry by Kathryn Stripling Byer, and other performers such as Barbara Duncan, Paul Iarussi, and Dave Waldrop. The Liars Bench was created in summer 2010 by Carden to promote Southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama and folk art.
