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 speeded the recording up a little to make it more a lively dance tempo (I can't play it quite this fast yet, sorry!) I got the song 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!
