The Quebe Sisters share a melancholy tune written by Grace and Sophia. The Quebe Sisters perform "Pierce the Blue" during "The Quebe Sisters" show at the 38th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
"This song has two parallel themes running through it. It’s about a difficult season of our lives we went through, and it’s also about universal pain we all feel that brings about our longing for reconciliation, change, and a better tomorrow.” — The Quebe Sisters
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Quebe Sisters
With over 15 years of touring to date, The Quebe Sisters have delivered their authentic triple fiddle and three-part harmony sound to the concert halls and festivals of North America and Europe. Grace, Sophia, and Hulda Quebe front an innovative, progressive western swing band of archtop guitar, upright bass, fiddles, and sibling harmony. The Dallas-based five-piece group, which also includes bandmates Simon Stipp and Daniel Parr, presents a unique Americana blend of western swing, jazz-influenced swing, country, Texas-style fiddling, and western music. Innovation has led the sisters to channel the musical connection between danceability and emotiveness, combining old sounds with new feelings and old feelings with new sounds. It’s not nostalgia that drives the band as purveyors of western swing, but the aspiration to take the music back to its roots and sustain the spirit of swing.
Filmed in front of a live audience at the Western Folklife Center’s G Three Bar Theater on Feb. 3, 2023.
