About The Quebe Sisters:
When the Quebe Sisters from Texas take the stage with their unique Western Swing style, audiences are usually transfixed and then blown away by the triple-threat fiddle champions and their multi-part, close harmony vocals. Their performances are authentic all-Americana, all the time, and respectful of the artists that inspired them the most.
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 and 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.
About Annie Moses Band:
The story of the Annie Moses Band began in a cotton field in North Texas during the Great Depression. Annie Moses, our great grandmother, picked cotton for a wealthy landowner and scrimped and saved to pay for a few piano lessons for our grandmother, Jane.
She died young, but her legacy lives on, first in Jane’s, Julie Andrews-style soprano which graced small country churches across the fruited plain, and then in the award-winning Nashville songwriting of our mother, Robin and our father, Bill.
Intensive classical training took us to the halls of the Juilliard School where the iconic sound of the Annie Moses Band took shape - blending the world of classical finesse with the heart of a hardscrabble family history.
Over 15 years later, the Annie Moses Band has recorded more than a dozen albums, produced Emmy-nominated PBS specials, traveled to Europe and Asia, and performed on stages as diverse as Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.
The Angelina Arts Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich, entertain and educate by presenting and promoting the performing arts.
