Live Performance: Jack Daniel's Stillhand - 3rd Floor Speakeasy

Told from the point of view of a stillhand who could have worked at the Jack Daniel distillery in Lynchburg, TN, near the turn of the last century, this interpretation details the pressures – social, political, personal – that Jack Daniel would have faced. It takes place in February 1909, shortly after Tennessee passed legislation which essentially prohibited the sale and manufacture of alcohol in the state, almost ten years before nationwide prohibition.
