When we started this ‘Road to C2C Festival’ back in early February, the festival seemed like a speck in the distance, but now we’re about to enter the week of the festival it’s about to happen! One of the acts we’re REALLY looking to forward to seeing is Delta Rae, from Durham, North Carolina. Delta Rae consists of three siblings Ian Hölljes (vocals and guitar), Eric Hölljes (vocals, guitar, piano and keys) and Brittany Hölljes (vocals), as well as Elizabeth Hopkins (vocals), Mike McKee (percussion) and Grant Emerson (bass guitar). The band formed in 2009, with the name coming from a fictional story the Hölljeses’ mother intended to write about a Southern girl named Delta Rae who summons the Greek gods to earth.
Delta Rae have built up a reputation as an amazing live band, so whatever you’re doing at C2C this weekend, drop everything to see these guys! You can get a great feel for the exuberance of the band in ‘Long and Happy Life’above!
Delta Rae will be appearing in London on the Town Square stage on Friday, C2C sessions at NY-LON, the BBC Radio 2 Stage and the late night saloon at All Bar One on Sunday.
