THE LIAR'S BENCH AT CITY LIGHTS, AUGUST 7TH
This Liar's Bench was a varied spectacle. Paul Iarrussi sung about mountain dew; Lloyd Arneach told an ancient Cherokee myth about the hummingbird; Glenda Beall discussed the contents of the new anthology, "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge," and read some of her own poetry, Tom Bennett performed a dramatic monologue about the travails of a mountain man at the Buzzard Roost revival; Steve Brady played and sang a composition of his own called "The Double-wide Blues;" I told a story about crackle-glass marbles and Dave Waldrop did a tribute to the Smoky Mountains. It probably don't get any better than this. The next Liar's Bench is September 4th and there is talk of taking our act on the road. Please stay tuned.
