The Take Me There Tour!
Delta Rae is a six-person folk-rock band from Durham, North Carolina, that includes siblings Ian, Eric, and Brittany Hölljes. The band's name came from a story their mother made up about a girl by that name who calls the Greek gods to Earth. The Hölljes siblings grew up partly in North Carolina and partly in the San Francisco Bay Area, and both places contributed strands to their musical DNA. After college, they moved into a house in the forest and set about finding their musical voice. Their early shows were legendary. "A lot of times we’d come down off stage and sing something in the middle of the audience, or be screaming out as opposed to singing in order to convey the emotion, to find something primal that will affect people," Ian recalls. Their energy, their awe-inspiring harmony singing, and a group of strong, honest original songs led them to the doorway of the major label Sire, which released their debut album, "Carry the Fire," in the summer of 2012. Since Delta Rae appeared at the 2013 Ann Arbor Folk Festival, they've gone on to nationwide popularity with a style they've described as Mumford & Sons meets Fleetwood Mac, and it's getting hard to see them in an intimate venue like The Ark where they really raise the roof. Don't miss this chance! Delta Rae is at work on a pair of new albums, "The Light" and "The Dark.
