The Quebe Sisters to perform at Pearson Lakes Art Center May 10 

The Quebe Sisters will take the stage at the Pearson Lakes Art Center Thursday night.

Newly-appointed Performing Arts Director Dave Rowley says the Texas Trio is award-winning.  "They are violinists, and they won the championship fiddling contest years ago when they were kids, and now they tour the country, they've been with so many different country artists, and they're really Western Swing.  If you remember Roy Rogers and Sons of the Pioneers, Bob Wills, and they've travelled all over, they're just fantastic."

He notes that the young trio has played with some big names.  "They've been on shows, if you remember, Riders in the Sky, Willie Nelson, of course, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait.  They played with Merle Haggard.  They've got so much experience, and not only that, but they're show-stoppers.  They're the type of people that entertain, and that's what we love in the theatre, entertainers that really get the audience involved."

The concert will get underway at 7:30 Thursday evening at the Pearson Lakes Art Center in Okoboji.
