PIGEON FORGE, TN – Nov. 13, 2019 – Archer, Tara Swift, has arrived in Pigeon Forge, performing death-defying feats. She shoots her arrows in the new “Silver Bow” variety show at the Silver Bow Theater. Shows run 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Comedy, daring escapes, live music and singing with a five-piece band and, of course, archery skills are on full display. Music selections include titles from popular movies, ballads, country, classic pop and Elvis songs.
Cross bow artist Swift comes to Pigeon Forge from Oregon. She has been shooting arrows since she was 5 years old, when she started practicing in her backyard on hay bales. She previously performed in the “Illusionists” touring magic show in the United States, Australia and Canada.
During the act, Swift uses audience members and comedic actor, Guy Windsor, known by his stage name as “Lucky” as her assistants. Swift shoots many different objects with the help of her participants.
The show also presents a tribute to Elvis by Elvis impersonator and lead male vocalist, Michael Chambliss, formerly of the Memories Theater cast. In addition to performing at Memories, Michael has headlined at Elvis events and festivals across the country, eventually winning the 2014 Images of the King Award World Champion award in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest during Elvis Week in Memphis, Tennessee. He has performed at the Pierce Arrow Theater and at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and at Gaither Homecomings. He was also a lead singer with the Cumberland Boys gospel group.
