The Liars Bench will presents southern Appalachian fright tales at WCUs Mountain Heritage Center Thursday, Oc. 20, at 7 p.m. The Liars Bench 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.”
