Liars Bench hosts Nashville singer/songwriter with local roots

Written by 

The Liars Bench presents “A Foxfire Christmas with Randy Flack” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, in the Mountain Heritage Center auditorium at Western Carolina University.

The group will perform southern Appalachian stories, music and songs onstage. Flack, born in Western North Carolina and raised in Swain County, is a Nashville recording artist and has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and the Blue Bird Cafe. He learned to play guitar and sing at an early age and has traveled all across the United States performing his own songs and delighting audiences.

The Liars Bench was created in the early summer of 2010 by Gary Carden, recipient of the 2008 Brown-Hudson Folklore Award and the 2012

North Carolina Award for Literature, to promote southern Appalachian storytelling, music, poetry, drama and folk arts.
