About The Artist

Shirley Barker was a long time performer on the famed WWVA Jamboree out of Wheeling, WV. She was married to another performer, Happy Go Lucky Joe Barker, a fiddler.

And you might see where she got the name Little Shirley from as she was four feet eleven inches and weighed about 113 pounds.
