Jig Dolls as a percussion instrument, here played by Jean Ritchie [previously] and The Beers Family. There are modern exponents though - Limberjacking is NOT just for folkies.

I find this extremely offensive, due to how arousing and titillating it is.

I never knew until now that that loose, clattery, strangely satisfying percussion sound on the Beers Family LP was freakin' little dolls! Man, that is nuts.
