TALES OF THE STRANGE AND EERIE, TOLD AND SUNG AT THE LIARS BENCH, CITY LIGHTS. OCTOBER 23RD
This was a fantastic show and we are going to repeat it in Waynesville at the Haywood County Library on October 29th at 6:00. Paul sung "Wreck and Ramblin' Boy" and Lloyd frightened everyone a little with the story of Spearfinger, the shape-changing witch who lived on Whiteside Mountain and visited Cherokee villages in the fall (during chestnut-roasting season),
Barbara sung to eerie, tragic songs of doomed lovers, Steve recounted the tale of the white owl of High Hampton and I told two tales: "Stinky OShannocy" and "Haiche, the blind storyteller." We had some special guests and the new online newspaper, TuckReader.com filmed us, so we are on both TuckReader and YouTube. Things look promising for the future. In November, will will have all of your favorite people back, plus a special guest, Saundra Kelley, who is the author of a new book on Appalachian Storytellers. Stay tuned.
