Meet The Quebe Sisters: Q&A with Texas-Style Fiddler & Harmony Vocalist Grace Quebe

A quick behind the scenes look at the low harmony of The Quebe Sisters, the always clever and chic, Grace Quebe.

Do you have a favorite Grand Ole Opry moment?

I don’t think I can single out one in particular, so here are a couple:

I’ll never forget the first time, when Ricky Skaggs invited us to play on the Grand Ole Opry. For me, that night was like Disneyland is to a lot of people, and one of my favorite memories was hearing Jack Greene sing “Statue of a Fool”!

By far, the most fateful Opry meeting of my life was a chance backstage hallway introduction to fellow Texans Penny and Katy Clark. Little did I know we would become best friends, and some years from then, tour and even play the Opry together! (Check out www.thepurplehulls.com to see what they’re up to and where they are playing!)

Other than music, what is something that you wanted to do growing up?

I always wanted to tame guineas. If anyone has attained that level of animal husbandry, please let me know!

What’s a unique skill you have that people might not know about?

Well, I was reading Amazon reviews of popsicle molds today, and I discovered that I have the unique talent of intuitively knowing how to easily get popsicles out of a popsicle mold. According to the reviews I read, this is not common knowledge. If you just run alittle warm water over the mold…

What’s something you’ve learn working with your siblings over the years?

After working together for years and years, I can tell you that one of them takes their coffee with cream, and the other is a coffee snob.

(Coffee Snob: noun; A person who feels angst over being subjected to hotel lobby coffee or a cup of anything akin, particularly first thing in the morning, and especially when there is a local coffee shop within a 10 miles radius of their location.)

How do you like to spend your time off the road?

I seem to be a regular down at the grocery store! Cooking is fun for me, so after I answer the next question, I’m going to go buy the ingredients for a new spicy peanut slaw recipe I found (and maybe some potato chips).

What music are you listening to these days?

Louis Franklin and Omega Burden jam tape

John Francis’ cd of fiddle tunes called Seventeen Tunes
