We've teamed up with the good people at Pickathon to present a season's worth of archival — and incredible — videos from the Pacific Northwest festival's Lucky Barn Series. Tune in every fourth Tuesday of the month to catch a new clip.
The fourth episode from the Spring season of the Lucky Barn Series showcases the Quebe Sisters. Fiddle trios have a long history in roots music — one these sisters are daring to revisit while putting their three-part, sibling-sweet harmonies on top, to boot. But long before sharing stages with legends like George Strait, Willie Nelson, Marty Stuart, Merle Haggard, and Connie Price, the Quebe Sisters — Hulda, Sophia, and Grace — got inspired by kids their age at a fiddle competition and started fiddling at the relatively young ages of 7, 10, and 12. Some 18 years later, it's safe to say they have a knack for it.
Pickathon comes back to the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, from August 5-7, 2016. Recent additions to the festival lineup include Mac DeMarco, King Sunny Ade, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Joseph, Ry X, Cory Henry, Promised Land Sound, Town Mountain, Myke Bogan, Blossom, Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms, Open Mike Eagle, and Chanti Darling. Tickets and the full lineup are available now.
