“The Quebe Sisters simply stopped me in my tracks when I heard them the first time. Their blend of swing with a dash of contemporary color is unique in today’s music world. They project a cannonball of stage presence and man can they play.”
~ Jimmy Buffett
“It’s an honor to live on the same planet as the Quebe Sisters. They represent everything that I love about pure American music and I’m probably their biggest fan.” ~ Marty Stuart
“The Quebe Sisters are some of the most talented people I’ve ever met. They do Texas proud. They live in Texas, sound like Texas and they’re prettier than Texas Bluebonnets, and sweeter than sugar cane. I love the Quebe Sisters” ~ Ricky Skaggs
When the Quebe Sisters 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. It’s partly because the trio’s vocal and instrumental performances are authentic all-Americana, all the time, respectful of the artists that inspired them the most. Whether the Quebe’s are decked out in denims and boots or fashionably dressed to the nines in makeup, skirts and heels, the fresh-faced, clean-cut sisters, all in their 20s, look as good as they sound. Not surprisingly, the Quebe Sisters receive standing ovations at just about every show they play. It has been that way since 2000, when they started fiddling together as pre-teens.
The sisters’ past is as colorful and eventful as their future is bright. Growing up in Burleson, Texas, a southern suburb of Fort Worth, Hulda, Sophia and Grace were ages 7, 10 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 girls earned solo and group accolades early on, winning state and national championships in their respective age groups in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. 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.
Today, after more than a decade of travelling the U.S. and the world, as well as recording three acclaimed albums, Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe are pros in a variety of genres, and count many famous musicians among their biggest boosters. The Quebes’ unbridled passion for American music, along with their talent, skills and a lot of hard work, has taken them far beyond their wildest early aspirations.
“One thing is for sure, you don’t see a group like the Quebe Sisters come along every day,” famed 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.”
