Tribute to Jimmie Driftwood Track 11: Dancing Dolls
1989 Oct 24
Cleada Driftwood, Glen Branscum, and Robin Branscum
Clead Driftwood, wife of renowned Arkansas musician Jimmie Driftwood demonstrates the dancing dolls. Father and son Glen and Robin Branscum play accompaniment. A dancing doll is a small, articulated figure with a stick in their back for the performer to hold. When placed feet-first on a thin board, the doll dancer can tap a rhythm which causes the doll to clog dance. The dolls foot falls can be heard in this recording.
Traditional folk music recorded live at the Ozark Folk Center during a celebration in tribute to Jimmie Driftwood.
