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

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).

This tune has no comments.
