Froggie the limberjack dancing to Do Mr. Boker Do, on banjo

musician/member name:
Duration: 00:02:13
This is Froggie the limberjack (also known as a jig doll). Froggie used to be plain unfinished wood, but I painted him to give him more personality. I imagine he is now fit to go courtin' Miss Mousie. Children love how Froggie's googly eyes spin round and round! Here I make him dance to an old minstrel song that I'm playing on my banjo, called Do Mr. Boker Do. I got the song directly from Phil Rice's banjo tutor book of 1858, playing it here as an instrumental. There are few things in music more fun than a dancing limber jack!

That was great, Lisa. You're certainly one of the best I've ever seen use those things.

One might be sharing that magic with friends.

Thanx Lisa

Dusty, yes, I cover all my limberjack tap boards with a couple layers of fabric....makes for a nicer slightly mellower sound, particularly considerate in old-time sessions.

Pretty darn cool. Froggie makes my plain unfinished wood limberjack look too vanilla. I do have a dog one, though, which my daughter loves. No googly eyes on him. Did you put some kind of covering on the dancing board?
