Dance in the Graveyards


Delta Rae is an American folk rock band that formed in Durham, North Carolina in 2009. Consisting of three siblings, Ian, Eric, and Brittany Hölljes, along with Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson, Delta Rae’s name came from a fictional story the Hölljesus’ mother intended to write (I suppose this means the story never bore fruition.) about a Southern girl named Delta Rae who summoned the Greek gods to earth.

Their debut album, Carry the Fire, was released in June 2012 and features “Dance in the Graveyards.”

They released a second album, After It All, in April 2015. I can find no record of follow-up albums, but they continue to tour, and gathering from what I have watched on YouTube, their live performances are popular.

Quoting from their official website bio, “Their music continually reveals a tension between male and female, dark and light, and life and death.”

I couldn’t have described their music any better myself.

I have also included a link to anther song, “Bottom of the River”—it came in a close second to “Dance in the Graveyards”—which is also on the album, Carry the Fire.

I hope you enjoy.

    • I like a wide variety of music. I stumbled across them on YouTube while just looking around, and particularly enjoyed Dance in the Graveyards. There’s a lot of good bands out there who are not well-known–kind of like writers. 🙂
