LIAR'S BENCH GOES TO THE CALHOUN INN, BRYSON CITY
Kind Hearts, last Saturday night at the Calhoun Inn was another delight. The Innkeeper, L. D. Hyde put the Liar's Bench in the parlor and the dining room was replete with refreshments. We had some new folks, like Barbara Duncan who is both a musician and a poet (and a full-time educator for the Museum of the Cherokees) and Dave Waldrop was back with his toe-tapping songs about destructive bulldozers and woodpeckers. Paul Iaggrussi was back with more "old timey music ("Slewfoot" and "Down in the Willow Garden); and I read a short piece from my play, "Outlander" which deals with Kephart and Granville Calhoun (who lived in the Calhoun Inn). Steve Brady and Billy Norton did "Dream of Proctor Town" and "I'll Take My Stand." I described the tragic death of "Bodine," my stuffed dog and the audience was one of the best we have had. We need to go back soon.
