Liarsville, Alaska, June 2004:

Liarsville PostcardFrom April thru September of 2004, Bill Stevens worked in Skagway, AK, where he provided entertainment for Red Onion, Inc.

His summer included performances at Liarsville, a Klondike gold rush mining camp. He represented native Alaskan culture for many of the passengers who disembarked in Skagway and headed to the mining camp to pan for gold and feast on salmon. He also did in-town performances at the Red Onion Saloon as well as elsewhere around town.


The photos below were taken in June, 2004. Tony "Snowshoe" Scott Pearce has also been a regular in Liarsville and ded performances with Bill on such tunes as Jenny Lind's Polka. "Tourists come in by the busload for tour of the old Gold Rush camp, salmon bake, and show (music and Robert Service poems)."
