When Steve Przybylski was looking for songs for the new show at Wayside, I suggested an old fiddle tune called Liberty. I’m happy to say that it will be in the show.
Every now and again as a musician, I find a song that is a perfect fit. Liberty is one of those songs.
The first time I heard the tune it just tripped something in my brain. The sound of it felt good. It made perfect sense to me and I was able to play it shortly after hearing it. It fell under my fingers as though it had been there before.
There are countless other fiddle tunes that are very similar to Liberty, but this one makes a connection. Playing it feels like home.
What makes that happen?
