Black Diamond Show Playlist: First Anniversary Edition: 9/13/10 WNHU 88.7 West Haven CT &

It's hard to believe that Bryan and his staff have let us on WNHU's airwaves for a year now! I'm enjoying bringing you the music--and I hope you've been enjoying it, too!

This week, the show is a mixture of old favorites, new material, and material new to the show. Before I post the playlist, I want to mention a band that I heard for the first time at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival.

Quebe Sisters Band Sweeping the country from their home base in Fort Worth, TX, are the Quebe Sisters Band. Grace, Sophie, and Hulda Quebe are all extremely talented fiddlers and singers, and play and sing with brilliant harmonies. In short, they are the musical offspring of the Andrews Sisters and The Wills Brothers (Bob Wills, and his brothers Johnnie Lee, Billy Jack, and Luke). I'd never heard them before--but listeners will hear them on the Black Diamond Show in the coming weeks! Joey McKenzie and his wife Sherry have been their teachers and mentors for years. Joey himself is an award-winning fiddler and now he arranges the Quebe sisters' material and provides an extremely strong rhythm guitar base. And Drew Phelps is one of the most versatile bassists I've seen in a long time--he and Joey provide a spare yet driving rhythm section for the three sisters. Search YouTube for some of their performances. If they make it up to the Northeast, you should pack up the old station wagon and take the kids out to hear them play. Very talented and very entertaining!
