Jerry Jeff Walker Tickets
Jerry Jeff Walker TicketsJerry Jeff Walker, an American country music singer and songwriter, was born in the state of New York, but he is more closely associated with the music scene of Austin, Texas. In the mid-1960s, he did spend his early folk music days in Greenwich Village, but moved to Texas in the 1970s. In the time period of 1967 to 2018, Walker has produced 34 albums. His first albums were recorded by mainstream record labels, but in 1986, Walker established his own record label, Tried and True Music. Even though his most recognized song is "Mr. Bojangles," which Walker wrote in 1967, he continues to perform in live concerts into the late 2010s.
Did a Mr. Bojangles Really Exist?It is believed that the song is about a talented, tap-dancing drifter who was arrested and jailed in New Orleans. Upon his arrest, the man asked to only be identified as Bojangles. Bojangles happens to be the nickname of a dancer named Bill Robinson, the best known and most highly compensated African-American entertainer in the first half of the 1900s. Walker himself spent time in a New Orleans jail with the man who identified himself as Bojangles, but Walker insists that the man was white, not African American. As proof, in Walker's autobiography Gypsy Songman, he offers that at the time of his arrest, the New Orleans jail was segregated, so he would not have been jailed with an African American. It is thought that Walker's Bojangles was a folk character who existed from the 1920s to about 1965 as an informal entertainer who traveled across the South and out to California.
