Description

Hand-selected, sustainable poplar, smooth-sanded to a natural finish, American made, $29 + shipping, Limberjack rhythm instrument and dancing doll. Play along with banjo, fiddle and Celtic tunes. His legs tap out the rhythm, his arms twirl! This is a two handed instrument, one hand to hold the Limberjack's operating stick (3/8” x 16” long) and one hand to bounce the wood paddle board (3 1/2” x 21 3/4”) Limberjack Man (10" high, 2" wide).

Playing the Limberjack: Think of the board as a percussion instrument and tap out a steady rhythm with the heel of your hand. Hold “Jack” where he just makes contact with the board, and he will dance to your rhythm.

Limberjacks are a true American handcraft; made and played for hundreds of years in the US and Canada. American Civil War lore is that Limberjacks were carved and played by soldiers in remembrance of fallen comrades. Use of Limberjacks is widespread; you can see them played in the British Isles, Appalachia and at folk festivals.

I was delighted with my jig doll which was the perfect birthday present for a muso boyfriend. However, UK buyers beware that customs charges (in my case £20) may be charged. This does not detract from the beauty of this lovely well made item which will be treasured.
