Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Quebie Sisters BandCrewe, VA -- When Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe (pronounced Kway-bee) raise their fiddles and play, audiences marvel. When the girls sing their vintage style three-part harmony, audiences are blown away. Add the extraordinary rhythm guitar of Joey McKenzie and the swinging upright bass of Drew Phelps, and The Quebie Sisters Band becomes a force of nature. The QSB's unique brand of music has taken the Americana music scene by storm. They perform a refreshing blend of western swing, vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling. Though still in their twenties, after more than ten years of performing together, the sisters sing and play like seasoned veterans.

On Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 7:00 PM the Virginia Museum of Radio Entertainment is pleased to present The Quebie Sisters Band at the Kenbridge Community Center, 511 West 5th Avenue in Kenbridge, VA. Virginia's own Appalachian Express will open the show. Kenbridge is about 15 miles north of South Hill, just minutes off of I-85. Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door, and are available through www.ticketstobuy.com, at select Benchmark Community Bank Locations, and at WSVS radio in Crewe, VA.
