Chapel Hill Serenade (trad. Appalachia/North Carolina Piedmont, USA)

Featured on track 3 of ‘The Piper in the Holler’ album (2012) and printed in ‘An Appalachian Collection’ tune book (2006). This tune is a 6/8 version of the hoedown ‘Green Willis’. The grace-notes that appear on this sheet music have since been updated to provide more emphasis on the backbeat, in imitation of old-time fiddling styles.
