Elkton, Virginia is located in the Shenandoah Valley at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Many of the regular performers can trace their family roots to the area's original settlers in the 1730s. On 15th day of September in 1716, Governor Spotswood and his Knights of the Golden Horseshoe stood atop of the Blue Ridge Mountains and before them lay the great Shenandoah Valley and at their feet the mighty Shenandoah River. The continued west until they reached what is now the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Here they rested, claimed the land for England’s King George, sang and made merriment before returning to Williamsburg. Present day Elkton was the site of the first Folk Song sung west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Elkton was the home of Bela Lam, the first commercial hillbilly recording artist in the Shenandoah Valley and the childhood home of World famous country music star, Patsy Cline. Your family adventure waits. Visit Elkton: America’s Gateway West Since 1716.
