The Quebe Sisters Band is an American fiddle Western swing group from Fort Worth, Texas. The band consists of sisters Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe. Formed in 2002, the band performs Western swing, vintage country and Western (Bob Wills, Sons of the Pioneers, etc.) and traditional Texas style fiddle tunes.[1] They are currently based in Fort Worth and tour nationally and internationally,[2][3] including appearances on the Grand Ole Opry.

The three sisters started taking fiddle lessons from Sherry F. McKenzie, a former national fiddle champion, and later from Joey Mckenzie (her husband), also a former national fiddle champion.
