New Texas music from a sister trio
When The Quebe (rhymes with maybe) Sisters from Texas take a stage, and the triple-threat fiddle champions start playing and singing in multi-part close harmony, audiences are usually transfixed, then blown away. They win standing ovations at just about every show. It’s been that way since 2000, when they started fiddling together as pre-teens. Growing up in Burleson, a southern suburb of Fort Worth, Hulda, Sophia and Grace were ages seven, ten, and 12 in 1998 when they attended their first local fiddle competition in nearby Denton, and decided fiddling was what they wanted to do. The Quebes’ evolution from the whiz-kid Western swing fiddlers they were back then to the smokin’-hot young adult Americana band they are today is a remarkable story, by any measure. Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, they’ve shared stages with American music legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky, and many others. "One thing is for sure, you don’t see a group like The Quebe Sisters come along every day," Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs told listeners on his own show on Nashville’s WSM. "Give them your undivided attention, and if you’re not already, you too, will become a fan."
