Q & A: Delta Rae to play The Cabot in Beverly

WL: Who are some of the band’s influences?
BH: Artists like James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Cat Stevens really popularized folk music and they have influenced our music. ... There are a lot of Motown and gospel influences, as well. Then there’s the groups like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles or Bonnie Raitt. We really run the gamut. And we’re fortunate that we happened to come up when Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town are popular. We felt like there was still room for us.

WL: How did the collaboration with Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac come about?
BH: We were on the road trying to figure out this song, “If I Loved You” so we could record it for our EP. We were out in L.A. at this studio ... and apparently, Lindsey had been there working the day before. ... He came in, grabbed an instrument called a gryphon and just started strumming. So this entire time, we had been looking for what this song needed. Apparently, it needed Lindsey Buckingham playing a 12-string gryphon.
