She was from Alabama, but the family originated in the Shenandoah Valley starting with Samuel Burks in the 1700s.  Who was supposedly married to the great-granddaughter of Chief Opechancanough of the Powhatans.  Or something.

Duane -

You should go to the Crooked Road Dulcimer Fest in Ferrum.  It's so close.

My grandmother was a Burks.

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
