Quebe Sisters Band Family Concert and the Tallahatchie Hayride- May 7, 2011- 3 pm- E.E. Bass Cultural Arts Center Lawn
The Delta Children’s Museum and the Greenville Symphony Association will present a free family out door spring concert featuring the famous Quebe Sisters Band and the Tallahatchie Hayride on the front lawn of E. E. Bass Cultural Arts Center in Greenville, Mississippi. The concert will celebrate completion of the first stage of renovation of the exterior façade of the “South end” of the E. E. Cultural Arts Center.
The Quebe (pronounced KWAY-be) Sisters Band is from Burleson, Texas and features Texas champion fiddlers Grace, age 20, Sophia, 18, and Hulda, 15 whose fleet-fingered triple-fiddle runs and right three-part vocal harmonies will be backed by the hard-driving, swinging rhythms of guitarist Joey McKenzie and bass fiddle player Mark Abbott. The band’s hot cowboy jazz sounds like a cross between The Andrews Sisters and the Texas Playboys. The Quebes’ sets include classic cowboy and swing songs such as “Across the Alley from the Alamo,” Wills’ “Roly Poly,” Duke Ellington’s “Take the ‘A’ Train,” Sons of the Pioneers’ “So Long to the Red River Valley” and “There’s a Rainbow Over the Range,” and a “fiddle-ized” take on Benny Goodman’s “Avalon.” The Quebe Sisters Band represents the past, present, and future of cowboy music and western swing.
The Tallahatchie Hayride is a country music stage show that is reminiscent of when the Grand Ole Opry meets The Louisiana Hayride. This is the best country music show this side of Nashville.
The rain space is inside in the E. E. Bass Auditorium.
