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

This is Pigman the limberjack (also known as a jig doll), made by Chris Harvey: http://www.jigdolls.co.uk/ . 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!

Cool little dude! What fun!

Are those tamborines in the basket? I was trying to figure out if they were or not.

Sam, you bring up an interesting point-

When I am actually 'playing' a limberjack, I see them as little personalities on their own, but I also am part of them, the dancing/musical thoughts and decisions flow through me to the dancing figure. But when I watch a video of me making them dance, I am able to more completely step out of the picture and see them from an observer's side, as totally independent 'little folk' with their own life. It's almost like i'm not even there when i watch the video. Such is the magic of puppetry.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments!

Lisa you HAVE to love watching the video. Even if you did the instrumental, even though you 'danced with' Piggy, you have just got to love watching as much as we do. Thanks for sharing him (and Froggy). Good stuff!!!

Thanks Strumelia. Always enjoy your limberjack posts. Wish I was talented enough to paint mine up nice like you do. It really gives them character! Best wishes.
