THE LIARS BENCH ON FEBRUARY 16TH: A NIGHT OF MUSIC, STORYTELLING AND DRAMA.....AND WE ARE GOING TO DO IT AGAIN NEXT WEEK ON THE 23RD!










KIND HEARTS, IT WAS A FANTASTIC NIGHT! KAREN BARENS SANG ABOUT MURDER IN KNOXVILLE AND DID A CROWD-PLEASING RENDITION OF STEPHEN FOSTER'S "HARD TIMES." LLOYD ARNEACH, THE CHEROKEE STORYTELLER TOLD A FEARSOME TALE ABOUT "THE GREAT LEECH," AND PAUL ARUSSI DID "THE GRANDFATHER CLOCK" WHICH I HAD NOT HEARD SINCE MY CHILDHOOD. WILLIAM RITTER SANG A STIRRING OLD BALLAD CALLED "LADY MARGARET" AND ERIC YOUNG DID A SERIES OF MEMORABLE MANDOLIN PIECES. BUT THE CENTERPIECE OF THE EVENING WAS TOM DEWEES, AN ACTOR FROM HAYWOOD COUNTY'S HART, WHO PERFORMED A DRAMATIC MONOLOGUE ENTITLED "COY," THE STORY OF A BOY WHO MAKES A DECISION ABOUT HIS DYING GRANDFATHER. IF YOU HAVEN'T COME, PLEASE DO. TICKETS ARE ON SALE ON CITY LIGHTS (AND AT THE DOOR ON THE 26TH. PERFORMANCE AT 7:00.) FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, CALL THE MOUNGTAIN HERITAGE CENTER OR GARY CARDEN: 399-9653.
