Originally learned from an old tunebook, then influenced by local fiddlers in North Alabama

Comments:
Here's an old chestnut that everyone plays back in Alabama. Even though it is overplayed, it can still be a challenge to play cleanly. As a joke, whenever a fiddler back in Alabama played Liberty poorly, they'd call it Stillhouse Liberty (implying that the poor rendition was due to the ingestion of moonshine).
