The Quebe Sisters Bring Fiddle Prowess to Weinberg Center in Pay-What-You-Want Event

 

FREDERICK, Md., Monday, March 13, 2017 — Fiddle trio The Quebe Sisters will combine Americana nostalgia with a modern take on southern swing in a performance at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 6 at 7:30pm. The performance marks the latest installment of the Weinberg Center’s Tivoli Discovery Series, which presents emerging artists of varying genres.

The Tivoli Discovery Series is pay-what-you-want with a suggested donation of $10. Tickets may be reserved in advance at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The Quebe Sisters have been earning standing ovations since they started fiddling more than 15 years ago. Growing up in Burleson, a southern suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, Hulda, Sophia, and Grace were ages 7, 10, and 12 respectively when they attended their first local fiddle competition 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. Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, they’ve shared the stage with 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, Asleep at the Wheel, and Riders in the Sky. Their most recent album is titled “Every Which-A-Way.”

 

The Tivoli Discovery Series is sponsored by the Tivoli Society of the Weinberg Center for the Arts. This engagement of The Quebe Sisters is sponsored by Music and Arts. A complete listing of artists and performers scheduled for the 2016-2017 season can be found at WeinbergCenter.org.
