charleston sprint triathlon series kicks off e

ven though we’re still in the spring season, one of the summer traditions of the lowcountry’s endurance sports community kicks off this weekend. The 23rd annual charleston sprint triathlon series commences sunday with the first of five races at James island county park and features two new twists, so to speak. The first will be free yoga taught by holy cow yoga instructor erin levesque 5:45-6:45 p.m. on the saturday before each triathlon at the park’s “lake” during packet pickup. The yoga is open to anyone, not just participants. “we wanted to incorporate another type of exercise into our triathlon experience,” said series director paul king. “i found that yoga poses mirror many stretches that endurance athletes use but in a more flowing movement.” The second addition to the series this year will be “prime awards” for the fastest times in each leg of the triathlon (swim, bike, run), said king. other dates for the triathlons are June 16, July 7 and 28 and the championship race aug. 11. races begin at 7:15 a.m. with a 600-yard freshwater swim in the lake at James island county park, continue with a 12-mile bike ride through the park and out and back on riverland drive, and finish with a flat 5k run. each race is limited to 400 participants, and fees start at $55 per race.

for the event. “with adaptive and creative paddling techniques, Jed still inspires us as he continues to kayak,” said livingston, adding that the event has raised more than $12,000 in the past four years. livingston said the goal this year is to raise $5,000. nature adventures outfitters has donated 100 percent of the proceeds to the national ms society-greater carolinas chapter and the tisch ms research center in the effort to help find a “kure” for the disease and for facilities that help ms patients. “This year, we’ll include stand-up paddleboarding tours as well as kayaks,” said livingston, adding that children ages 4 and up are welcome. The event also will feature a silent auction with prizes including whitewater rafting, kayaking trips, eco-tour boat excursions, gift baskets and more.

‘star trek into darkness’

Latest movie has many high notes yet somehow steers its way off course movie review

By roger moore MCT

Zachary quinto (left) and Chris Pine in “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

he giddiness of “star trek” is gone, but “star trek into darkness” maintains its love of character and pathos, the other great selling points of this rebooted sci-fi franchise. There’s action in abundance and some production design flourishes that are as eye-popping as any science fiction ever to hit the screen. But as our old friend ricardo montalban said 30 years ago in “The wrath of khan,” still the best of the “star trek” films: “it is veeery coooooold in space.” “into darkness,” for all its dense textures and epic scale, left me cold. director J.J. abrams, who has owned up to not having an emotional attachment to the tv show or the movies it spawned, commissioned his screenwriters to do a riff on “wrath of khan,” an alternate history of the khan myth. so knowing the classic “trek” version — dating from a tv episode in the ’60s, updated with the ’80s movie — doesn’t help in appreciating the new one or spoil its surprises. That’s both good and bad; good in its novelty, bad in the sense that it

abrams takes enterprise in surprising direction

By rene rodriguez The Miami Herald


ou just made my day,” director J.J. abrams said, exhaling with relief. he’d just been told that a particular action sequence in his new movie, “star trek into darkness,” quickened the pulse of a seen-itall movie critic. For a moment, abrams can stop explaining all the laborious homework and meticulous details that go into making a film with a rabid (and vocal) fan base and simply talk about the picture as a giant summer movie, shot with imaX cameras and postconverted to 3d. “The key for us was always to make a movie that was, above all else, a thrill ride and funny and entertaining,” abrams said. “we had already done the heavy lifting (in

2009’s “star trek”) and established our take on the characters and our own timeline that acknowledges and honors everything that had come before, but at the same time splits off and heads out on its own direction. we could pick and choose what we wanted from the original series and leave other things alone. and it was intentionally designed as a stand-alone movie. There’s no need to have seen the first movie or the original series. They are not essential reading. But if you are a fan of the series, you’ll be rewarded, too.” although “into darkness” tinkers with the “trek” canon in ingenious (some will say blasphemous) ways, the movie’s primary objective is to put on a great show with a series of increasingly grander action setpieces that are furiously exciting. “what J.J. does so well is to main-

tain a sense of fun throughout the entire story,” said simon pegg, who plays the engineer scotty. “it’s important that a big entertainment like this remembers what it is and doesn’t get pretensions of high art. not that the movie isn’t artful: it is. But there has been a tendency recently in movies to get overly serious with what is essentially kids’ stuff. “some filmmakers are trying to make comic books and superheroes and fantasy a little more somber, but i think sometimes that’s a slight misstep because it loses the core of what makes (the genre) special. J.J. never loses touch with his inner child: he is so in touch with the experience of being thrilled and happy and excited in every way.” “star trek into darkness,” which opens in theaters today, follows the crew of the enterprise as it

reluctantly embarks on a military mission to apprehend a terrorist, John harrison (Benedict cumberbatch), who plants a bomb that kills hundreds of people in london, then hides out on a klingon planet where captain James t. kirk (chris pine) and his crew are bound by law not to trespass.

High expectations

with all those pesky origin storylines and character introductions taken care of in the first film (which grossed $385 million worldwide), you might assume writing the sequel would be easier, an opportunity for the creators to play and indulge crazy ideas. But roberto orci, who co-wrote the screenplay with alex kurtzman and damon lindelof, said please see abrams, page e7

more democratic “trek” in which all of the principals have big scenes, big moments and serious character development. Thus lt. uhura (zoe saldana) shows off her linguistic competence, and her emotional attachment to the recklessly selfless spock (zachary Quinto). scotty (simon pegg) expresses moral objections to the new ways of war. and everyone has his or her ethics, courage and convictions tested by a new villain, a terrorist (Benedict cumberbatch) whose agenda is a mystery even more puzzling if you remember “The wrath of khan.” in a bravura intro, kirk (chris pine) and spock try to intervene without intervening in a primitive, red-foliage planet whose simple, belligerent natives

are about to be wiped out by a volcano. kirk wants to act, spock wants to lecture him on “the prime directive” (no interference). kirk faces demotion, the crew of the enterprise may be broken up, and then the mysterious terrorist starts blowing stuff up at starfleet. is he connected with the “sworn enemy” klingons? can the bad guy be taken out by photon torpedo drone strikes? can kirk convince the admiral (peter weller of “robocop”) that only he can save the day? The 3d here is stunning, and that depth of field is put to good use in space battles and on alien worlds. abrams and his writers toss in scads of offhand references to the “trek” universe: dr. carol marcus (alice eve) shows up, and nurse chapel is mentioned.

There’s plenty of humor leavening all the weighty questions about who is a terrorist and who has the moral high ground. chekov (anton yelchin) kvetches like never before. scotty has the best lines, especially when he’s had a few to drink. (“if it isn’t captain James tiberius perfect hair!”) But the movie’s a muddle, a piece that abrams seems to want to turn into a “lost” puzzle that makes more sense in his head than on the screen. The confusing conflation of past films and alternate universe story is burdensome. and cumberbatch makes a decent villain but a much better tv sherlock holmes. “star trek” is still boldly going its own way, even as it references the classic “trek” canon. But somewhere along the way, abrams got lost.

the experience was quite the opposite. “with the first movie, we benefited from low expectations,” orci said. “how are you going to recast kirk and spock? no one thought it could be done. now with the second movie, all that stuff is gone and we can do anything we want. That was actually horrifying and terrifying because the audience demands to be surprised again, but this time their expectations are much higher.” ever since filming began, rumors have run rampant on the internet. is the bad guy in the film really the iconic villain khan (originally played by ricardo montalban) in disguise? is the shot from the Japanese trailer of two hands touching through a pane of glass an homage to the ending of “star trek ii: The wrath of khan,” and if so, who do the hands belong to? is there really a tribble in the movie? writer larry nemecek, a “star trek” authority who maintains the popular trek, said even he was caught off-guard by some of the twists in “into darkness.” “The story starts out as a routine mission, but there are some major milestones for many of the characters,” he said. “i was really struck by how many homages they paid to the original show. They managed to walk the line and satisfy both the core fans and the casual viewers. during the last third of the movie, i was sitting there thinking,

‘i can’t believe they’re going there.’ and they really went there!”

Roddenberry’s legacy

what makes “into darkness” feel like a true “star trek” movie, even more than the previous film, is that the story is replete with allegories and metaphors that speak to modern times, honoring the intent gene roddenberry had when he created the tv show in the 1960s. “when you think about science fiction in general, the vast majority of future scenarios are very bleak,” said professor anthony rotolo, who teaches a class called star trek and the information age at syracuse university. “people are always struggling against some kind of tyrannical empire. roddenberry was the first to offer a vision of humanity that was hopeful. earth had overcome all the elements of war and we were exploring the universe again — a kind of race-to-the-moon feeling. he had a humanist vision of the future, being self-aware and educating yourself and carrying that to the way you deal with other people. That’s why his phasers had a stun setting. wouldn’t we rather make weapons that would knock them out and talk to them later? now you have that idea represented today by tasers.” abrams made a point to honor roddenberry’s legacy with “into darkness,” making sure that the futuristic story unfolding onscreen bore some connection to contemporary audiences. “ ‘star trek’ is not a long

time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” he said. “it’s us in the future, and that future will come sooner than you think. it’s imperative that the movie not be preachy or be a polemic. But it should also deal with resonant, relevant issues we are grappling with today. while this movie was not made with a precious import, we were very conscious to deal with elements that we could relate to and make us feel. if the audience doesn’t feel connected to the themes and events and the villain of the story, you end up with a theoretical, observational experience, where people watch the movie but don’t live the movie. They are not inside it. “so we let the characters have philosophical debates about certain moral quandaries without getting preachy. what happens when authority is wrong? what happens when following the rules means doing the immoral thing? what happens when you suspect you’re going to be attacked, so you become the attacker? none of that takes away from the excitement of the movie. on the contrary, it gives it a real pulse and soul.”

What’s next

abrams, who has accepted the daunting task of directing the next “star wars” movie (due in 2015), said he tends to do his best work when all eyes are trained on him. “sure, there’s going to be pressure. But there has been pressure in every tv show and film i’ve been involved in. one way to look at it is pressure; another way is to look at it is excitement.”

summerville bakery serves up true delicatessen offerings By roB young Special to The Post and Courier


y friends and i long have lamented the absence of a true delicatessen in charleston, discounting those that masquerade as such. Those concerns, or annoyances, do not extend to the charleston delicatessen & Bakery. The Jewish delicatessen lives up to its title and to expectations. it’s like an outlier of sorts in a land of pretend delis, coolly delivering carnegiestyle stacked sandwiches, potato knishes, slow-roasted brisket sandwiches and beef tongue from its summerville outpost. it’s a place worth your time, worth your travel and worth your indulgence, no matter where you may live in the charleston area. The deli serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. mornings present freshly baked bagels and buttery croissants, house-made

The rest of the day belongs to features like matzo ball soup ($4.25), quiches, deep-dish tomato pies ($8.95) and a generous sandwich board: handtrimmed corned beef ($10.50), tender brisket ($10.50), reubens ($10.95) and spicerubbed and smoked pastrami ($10.50). For $18.50, the delicatessen ramps up the sandwich portion size to levels befitting new york’s carnegie deli. The impossibly large bread and dessert display cases also show off a world of options. The charleston delicatessen prepares its own Jewish rye and French baguettes, along with a rich collection of sweets like baklava, eclairs, italian cannoli, rum cake, and black and white cookies. and what’s this? They’re even introducing an ice creamery to the store, creating parlor-made classics that hark back to the 1950s. put it on the list — it’s yet another reason for dropping in.

Second annual event aims for educational fun in the sun By t. Ballard lesemann Special to The Post and Courier


here may not be any lederhosenclad Bavarian types strolling the grounds at this weekend’s charleston Beer garden, but there will be a variety of local beer lovers who appreciate high-quality ales and lagers in a beautiful park setting. “The whole idea was built around being a beer garden, which for us is the quintessential way of communing with friends,” said festival organizer hillary Jones of the gusto group. last spring, the inaugural charleston Beer garden drew a strong crowd of beer enthusiasts and novices to Brittlebank park on lockwood drive. attendees of “the largest pop-up beer garden charleston has experienced” enjoyed the tree-covered setting by the ashley river, taking advantage of the vip areas, growler stations, cornhole lanes, beer classes, food trucks and live music. This year, the festival returns to the park with a full roster of craft-brewed ales, lagers and seasonal beers. a few major breweries are on the list, but

is a super-intensive tasting session, the charleston Beer garden has found its way into a spot right in the middle as an interactive riverside party with beer as the central theme. “The Festival of Beer and Brewvival are great events that do an amazing job of opening people’s eyes to a mass amount of craft beers with sampling opportunities,” Jones said. “They’re very well-done. with charleston Beer garden, we like to think of it as a celebration of beer where people can come and sample specific beers, but they also can hang out, play games, enjoy a day by the ashley river, kick back and do what we believe beer is built on. “it’s all about camaraderie, hanging out and enjoying beer in a space that you don’t normally get to do that,” Jones said. “we love for that to be the core of the event. That builds a foundation for it.”

Perfecting the party

Jones has spent years working for wine and beer companies and distributors, and she embraces the fun side of

Heather Beem and Thomas O’Briant of Lee Distributors serve some thirsty patrons. those industries. “Both beer and wine have their special fun aspects,” she said. while Jones admits she’s never spent time in Bavarian biergartens, she loved the inner-city beer gardens and patio hangouts of chicago. “For me, the love came out of the merging of two different things. in chicago, there were beer gardens everywhere. They were open-air, wedged in all over the city within brick walls in really

unique spaces. The pop-up event culture kicked up a few years ago, too. people started putting on one-day events in great outdoor spaces. For me, it’s exciting to see a lot of beer gardens popping up all over.” admission to the first charleston Beer garden included a commemorative festival pint glass and koozie, a “sampling passport” with information about the participating breweries and a bag of beer swag. at the peak of the afternoon, some found lines for samples and pints to be very long and running slowly. Jones and her team were well-aware of what worked and what didn’t in the first year, so they’ve addressed the issues and adjusted their approach for year two. “we thought a lot about some of the things we could do slightly differently this year,” she said. “There were a few things that didn’t totally work out, so we listened carefully for feedback from people who attended last year. we took it all into account and added more beers, more classes and more events. “we don’t want anyone to have the experience of waiting all day in beer lines, so

that was one of the first issues we addressed,” Jones adds. “in addition to the beer locations around the festival, we had brewers set up in their tents in one place. people were eager to get what was included in the ticket, so they wound up on one side of the festival trying to get samples. That was something we wanted to fix, so we adopted a slightly different way. They’ll have more of a choice to do what they want, whether it’s getting 3-ounce samples or full pints. The new pint glass “steins” will have 3-ounce pour lines marked on the side, making it easier for servers to pour proper samples, while small handout festival maps will chart where each class, game and performance will be held. in addition to the beer tickets in the sampling passport, tickets for extra samples or pints of beer will be available for purchase.

Music, sudsy extras

dozens of craft beers will be pouring throughout the day. charleston’s holy city Brewing and palmetto Brewing co. will be on hand with some of their standard and seasonal offerings. green-

This year, the musical lineup will include nashville, tenn.-based southern rock band a Thousand horses, country/indie quintet the royal tinfoil, funk group wadata, twangy songwriter Jordan igoe and singer/ guitarist will hastings. Jones and her crew altered the layout of the festival to create a better flow from the vendors’ side to the music stage side. “The stage is in the same open area that’s kind of central to the festival, but we’ll have four additional breweries spread out near the music area,” she said. “it puts breweries closer to the music,

games and classes.” This year’s Beer olympics competition will feature the keg toss, grain sack race, growler ring toss and other lively activities. players can win a one-year membership to east shore athletic club, a charter fishing trip with lowcountry drifter charters, commemorative cornhole boards and other prizes. on the more academic side, the earth Fare Beer school will offer eight classes and seminars throughout the day, including a class on the vital ingredients of beer hosted by sierra nevada, several home-brewing sessions with the local home-brewing club lowcountry libations, a question-and-answer session with local brewmaster chris Brown of holy city Brewing, and two food-and-beer pairing sessions hosted by Brooklyn Brewery and lagunitas Brewing co. The homebrewers’ village will be an area where local home brewers can offer samples of their own specialty ales and lagers as well as information on home-brewing equipment, ingredients, procedures and competitions. “if you’re in the experimental phases and really want to approach it as an opportunity to learn about beer, go and try the beers, meet the brewers, play the games, and take the classes,” Jones said. “if you’re more into the idea of having fun and chilling out, go and grab a pint or growler and check out the games.”

Something to Believe/Open Mic




all Baz luhrmann just about anything you want, but don’t call him conventional. The director has made a career of taking other people’s stories and putting his own decadent spin on them. in luhrmann’s hands, shakespeare’s “romeo and Juliet” became a modern-day tale of doomed lovers complete with designer drugs and semiautomatic weapons, and it was a hit. and his remake of “moulin rouge” was the greatest Bollywood film never made in india, and it worked despite the fact that it really should not have. now, luhrmann has decided to tackle that pinnacle of american literature, F. scott Fitzgerald’s “The great gatsby.” while the film is based in the early 20th century portrayed in the novel, this time, luhrmann has decided to insert 21st-century music into the mix. he did something similar in “moulin rouge,” but this time, the filmmaker has decided that music by Jay-z, Beyonce, Jack white and gotye will substitute nicely for the jazz-age tunes that were popular back in the time the story is set. it’s a novel idea, and had the music in question been top-shelf stuff, it might have worked. what we get on the soundtrack, though, are half-realized songs that are obviously castoffs from the various artists’ recent projects. Jay-z’s “100$ Bill” is uncharacteristically boring, while Florence and the machine’s “over the love” is similarly tepid. Bryan Ferry is heading in the right direction with “love is the drug,” but it still sounds forced. The only two tracks that lend themselves well to the story’s subject matter are Fergie’s “a little party never killed nobody (all we got)” and emeli sande’s jazzed-up cover of Beyonce’s “crazy in love.” again, luhrmann has guts to try to pull this off, but in the end, the musical ends just don’t justify the theatrical means.


key tracks: “love is the drug,” “a little party never killed nobody (all we got),” “crazy in love”

inger natalie maines is primarily known for two things: her grammy award-winning work with the dixie chicks and the comments she made about former president george w. Bush that caused country fans to shun that band for a time. while the dixie chicks weathered the political fallout of maines’ comments, its members have been spending time apart. The other two-thirds of the band, marty maguire and emily robison, have released new music as a duo. while maines hadn’t originally intended to do the same, she found herself playing around with some tracks in Ben harper’s los angeles studio, and before she knew it, harper was producing what eventually became “mother.” The album’s title refers to maines’ cover of the classic rock song by pink Floyd, and maines absolutely makes it her own. The album is a mix of covers and originals. maines’ take on Jeff Buckley’s “lover, you should’ve come over” isn’t quite as good as the Floyd cover, but it’s heartfelt nonetheless. “without you,” a song by eddie vedder originally included on his “ukulele songs” album, sounds great in a more fleshed out version by maines. among the original songs, “come cryin’ to me” was a dixie chicks song originally rejected as being too rock ’n’ roll, but its sheryl crow-like groove works beautifully here. This album is far more rock-oriented than anything we’ve heard from maines in the past, and she wears the music style well. harper’s influence can be heard all over this album. while many are hopeful that the dixie chicks get back together to record some new music soon, having an excellent album like this takes a bit of the hurt out of waiting for that to happen.


keytracks: “without you,” “mother,” “come cryin’ to me”

he human ear is a pretty miraculous thing. it picks up vibrations in the air and delivers them to the brain as sound. when music is the source of those vibrations, it’s possible for that sound to remind the listener of something they’ve heard before. upon hearing “something to Believe” by singer-songwriter charlie mosbrook, i was struck by the confident yet melodic sound of his singing voice. That voice reminds me of similarly masculine folk voices of the past, such as kris kristofferson, Jim croce and gordon lightfoot. mosbrook’s songwriting is original, though, from the excellent “listen to a woman” to “creepy,” a clever song of a love hidden away. mosbrook was diagnosed with a progressive spinal disorder that left him an incomplete quadriplegic a few years back. despite the physical limitations, mosbrook has continued to write, record and tour. The song “crooked stick” examines his disability, but not in a self-pitying manner. The title track is another one of the album’s better songs, and it has a great old-time folk feel to it. mosbrook has an impressive list of guest artists who play on the album with him, including harmonica player steev inglish, mandolin player Bill lestock and vocalist cindy langmack. The collection of a dozen songs will appeal to anyone who enjoys good acoustic folk or americana.

Following his split with the J.c. davis band, walker spent most of his time running his art gallery in new york before returning to music as a songwriter for motown in 1979 and eventually as a solo artist in the ’90s. he teamed with the dynamites in 2007 for the album “kaboom,” and has remained part of the collaboration ever since. charles walker and the dynamites will perform Friday at The pour house, 1977 maybank highway. doors open at 9 p.m. with the show starting at 10 p.m. tickets are $10 in advance, $13 the day of the show, and are available at the door or online at call 571-4343 or go to

local band to play first flush, then bonnaroo By aBigail darlington

w m m s


n terms of rising to rock stardom, stop light observations technically should still be in its infancy. The group of 20- to 21-year-olds has been playing together for a little over a year, and they’ve played only a handful of gigs around town. But factor in the groundswell of local support that keeps snowballing behind them, and the fact that they were chosen from about 1,000 bands around the country to play a set at the Bonnaroo music and arts Festival this summer, and you’ve got a band poised for greatness. stop light observations, often referred to as simply slo, comprises John keith culbreth (songwriter, synth, keys, guitar), will Blackburn (vocals), louis duffie (guitar, synth), wyatt garey (guitar), coleman sawyer (bass, fiddle, banjo) and luke withers (drums). you can see them in action saturday at the charleston tea plantation for the First Flush Festeaval, where they’ll share the stage with headliner old crow medicine show and others.

First Flush

put on by 105.5 The Bridge and the charleston tea plantation, the First Flush Festeaval is all about celebrating the commencement of the 2013 crop harvest. The festival name, First Flush, is defined on the plantation’s website as “the growth of new leaves on the tea plants in the spring time after a winter of rest. The ‘first flush’ of new growth is harvested to produce what avid tea drinkers deem to be the most unique, fresh and amazing cup of tea.” while tea may be at the center of the festival held at the charleston tea plantation on wadmalaw island, billed as “america’s only tea garden,” the event includes music, entertainment, art and local cuisine for the whole family. in its seventh year, the event will begin at 2 p.m. and will include a kids area, food trucks, vendors and more.



Stop Light Observations was selected out of about 1,000 bands to play at Bonnaroo. musical performances in addition to slo and old crow medicine show include The luke cunningham Band, tyler Boone, Quincy mumford, sun dried vibes, gas light street, The executives, south street, annalise morelli, samantha kirshtein and southwood.

band from page e16 to be there.” if scouts at Bonnaroo hear what charleston hears, slo may soon find itself on the map of the american music scene.

The SLO sound

slo often is marketed as a southern rock group, but to pin a single genre on it would be too limiting. like many bands its age, slo is the product of a generation insistent on fusing styles and eras to create unique identities. “when you listen to our album, it starts out kind of swampy and a little bit grungy with acoustic melodies,” Blackburn said. “Then the further you go into it, it turns into synthesizers and big, heavy, dirty guitar solos.” on paper, it’s everything but the kitchen sink. But it’s a sound that has captivated charleston’s younger audience with an unforeseen velocity. “i don’t think we write songs. we try to write experi-

Stop Light Observations ences,” culbreth said. “it’s our music being a form of self-discovery, and then the crowd finding who they are, and then sharing that all together. ... That’s what makes it so special.” Blackburn said they accumulated a fan base when some of the members played together in high school at parties. once they started recording as slo, they were able to spread their music through social

File/marie rodriguez, the band has close to 19,000 followers on Facebook. “it’s endless the amount of ways it can spread. The friend showing friends type of networking has really worked for us. social media is probably how we did it so fast,” he said. it also helps to have friends in the right places. slo has everyone from social media gurus to filmmakers in its corner, ready to help however needed.


With nearly 127 acres of tea bushes on Wadmalaw Island, the Charleston Tea Plantation is the only place in North America where guests can experience tea from leaf to cup. “people who are not even asking for money are just doing these things out of love for us, just to make sure that we’re being heard and that we have a chance to make it,” culbreth said.

That kind of community support makes culbreth and Blackburn cherish their hometown even more. “charleston is probably the best place we could have ever been a band,” he said. “in cit-

ies like Boston or new york or charleston, if you’re from there and you make them proud, they’ll pay you back with a loyalty. and i think charleston is one of the few places like that.”

Queen OF THE

blues bonnie raitt still reigns supreme after four decades

By stratton lawrence Special to The Post and Courier


he instinct to help people is ingrained in Bonnie raitt’s dna, likely somewhere near the gene that gives her the ability to play a mean blues guitar and sing like a soulful angel. even before the release of her 1971 eponymous debut, raitt’s career track was oriented toward service. a social relations and african studies major at radcliffe college in Boston, harvard’s sister school, raitt began playing the slide guitar and singing the blues as an evening hobby. Fortunately for her legions of fans, raitt found herself in the right place at the right time. with the backing of a local blues promoter whom she befriended, raitt began sitting in with greats like howlin’ wolf, mississippi Fred mcdowell and sippie wallace, a female blues great. she soon put her dreams of a service career in africa aside, following her musical muse instead. over the four decades since first establishing herself as a blues singer, raitt has dedicated her life to music and activism, maintaining a strong voice in the antinuclear, environmental and human rights movements. in charleston, she has worked

blues from page e20 she performs to local charities in the region, raitt has never lost sight of her ideals, leveraging her fame to help individuals and the planet at every step along the way.

‘Nick of Time’

now 63, raitt, daughter of late Broadway musical star John raitt, has cemented her legacy as one of the all-time greats in blues music. rolling stone includes her on both its lists of the top 100 singers and guitarists of all-time, thanks to her biting slide work on the guitar and her poignant lyrical delivery. irish songwriter danny ellis first heard raitt’s music in 1989, when she released the classic album “nick of time.” “my wife and i met around that time, and that was our go-to album when we were courting,” recalls ellis, who opens raitt’s concert on Friday at the north charleston performing arts center. “Bonnie has an expression to her voice that really takes a lyric to a whole ‘nother place. when she sings a song, the lyrics go home to where the writer meant for them to go.” raitt’s ability to express herself and “get inside of a lyric when she sings” helped to inspire ellis as he transformed himself from a pop and r&B songwriter into a singer writing personal songs with only a guitar to accompany him. in his own musical development, ellis first emulated dixieland jazz and the hit american bands of the ’70s, traveling with various groups around the european continent and to the united states. it wasn’t until he settled in asheville, n.c., that ellis came to terms with his difficult childhood. at 8, his mother handed him and his four siblings over to the care of the state. he was raised in an orphanage that doubled as a correctional school until he was 16, exposing him to “thieves, tinkers, bullies and blackguards.” in 2009, ellis released “800 voices,” a “devastatingly personal” album that traces his story growing up in the irish orphanage. ellis’ friend and fellow songwriter, david wilcox, gave a copy of the disc to nashville, tenn., songwriter Beth nielsen chapman, who played it for raitt during a vacation together in malibu, calif. soon thereafter, raitt reached out to ellis in an email to let him know she was a fan and to invite him to her upcoming show in asheville. “i was over the moon. you can imagine how that would impact

you,” recalls ellis. “when my wife and i first met her and told her we had courted to ‘nick of time,’ she was genuinely bowled over and touched. she’s a really down-to-earth, straight-talking person.” after booking this week’s date in charleston, raitt again reached out to ellis, inviting him to perform. The timing worked out nicely; ellis released his newest album, “rest yourself,” this month, blending his folk songwriting with the natural celtic influence that permeates all of his work. “when the irish influence started to creep back into my music, it really felt like something was coming home,” said ellis.

In the ‘Slipstream’

raitt’s current tour also coincides with a highly successful new album, “slipstream.” released last april, the disc won a grammy earlier this year for Best americana album, bringing her total count of gilded gramophones to 10. The release of “slipstream” fol-

“I took a yearlong hiatus from working on anything related to a new album or touring to find some balance in the other areas of my life. It was a very worthwhile and restorative time,” said Bonnie Raitt. lowed seven years behind her previous album, 2005’s “souls alike,” and marked a difficult period in her life where she lost both of her parents, her brother and a best friend. “i knew i needed to take some time to heal,” raitt said in an interview about the album. “i took a yearlong hiatus from working on anything related to a new album or touring to find some balance in the other areas of my life. it was a very worthwhile and restorative time.” For the collection of songs, raitt drew from her own recent songwriting, tunes by randall Bramblett, loudon wainwright and al anderson, and classics like gerry rafferty’s “right down the line.” “That song (“right down the line”) came on the radio a few years ago, and the guitar part just came to me like a lightning bolt. i love that nexus where reggae and rock meet, and this song gets right into it,” raitt said. “i’m so inspired and proud to carry on the styles of music i love, whether it’s reggae or a James Brown feel, ballads or the blues. i’m in the slipstream of those who came before me, and i’m creating one for those behind me, as well.” raitt said she’s also been drawing inspiration from newer acts like Bon iver and The Black keys, and was honored to hear Bon iver, adele and kelly clarkson cover her song, “i can’t make you love me” in recent

years. “There’s so much great music out there now, especially in the americana format i tend to listen to,” said raitt. “i’m really happy with the success of The Black keys and some others that show real artistry and innovation. it’s great to hear so many young artists influenced by the same classic soul, blues, jazz and rock that means so much to me.” although “slipstream” includes guest performances from luminaries like jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, raitt still relies on her band in the studio, some of whom have been with her since “nick of time,” including drummer ricky Fataar and bassist James “hutch” hutchinson. raitt’s keep-it-in-the-family attitude is underscored by the release of “slipstream” on her own redwing records. Throughout the ’70s and ’80s, raitt dealt with constant wrangling by record companies that would bid for rights to her next album, only to drop her when a release didn’t achieve the commercial success that they’d hoped. despite being a recognizable name for 20 years, her first genuine hit didn’t come until “nick of time.” she followed that album with a series of hits throughout the ’90s, including “something to talk about” and “love sneakin’ up on you,” both

of which accompanied platinumselling albums. “we did a lot of research on the different options for a legacy artist like myself in this very different music business of today,” raitt said of the decision to self-release. “i think the biggest change is how streamlined and customized our efforts are. The narrowed focus of being the only artist on a label helps with that transparency and control, and we know these folks are passionate and aren’t being pulled in so many directions.” still, raitt acknowledges that getting a foot in the door as an independent artist in 2013 would be far more difficult than it was for her in 1970. “There are more inexpensive, populist routes to getting your music and image out through the internet and indie labels and blogs, but wading through the explosion of new artists from nearly every format of music trying to break through is challenging,” she said. “you’re more at the mercy of luck and who you know.” Fortunately for artists like ellis, raitt is more than willing to offer a hand to help music she believes in find a wider audience, just as every concert she plays is another step in her lifelong quest to improve the health of the planet and the human condition, one bluesy note at a time.

Joint show

Jill hooper and kamille corry are accomplished classic realism artists, but what many don’t know is that these two also are great friends and have spent years growing together as women as well as artists. The two will have a show together throughout may at ann long Fine art, 54 Broad st. “corry and hooper met in the early ’90s as students of d. Jeffrey mims. They spent months working beside one another in mims’ atelier in southern pines, n.c., and with mims in Florence, italy,” explains susan kridler of ann long Fine art. “returning from italy, they embarked on a road trip, traveling west across the united states to paint landscape. This trip solidified their steely dedication to inspire, be inspired by and challenge one another artistically. “while the two women share a passion for classical realism, each has developed a voice that is clearly unique. For this exhibit, both artists have returned to the subject matter they are most wellknown for: corry’s emphasis is the human figure and portraiture; hooper’s is still life,” kridler said. They’ve been preparing for this exhibition over the past few months, corry in her studio in lake city, utah, and hooper in her studios in charleston and london. The show will open Friday and will be on display through the remainder of the month. call 577-0447 or go to www.

An opening reception for Solecki will be 5-7:30 p.m. today.

‘eclectic interiors’

The gibbes museum’s art with a twist series continues to gain popularity as they bring in more experts from different industries related to the arts to speak about their fields. monday’s lunchtime lecture will be by author susan sully. “in her latest publication, ‘houses with charm: simple southern style,’ sully explores southern antiques and architecture. during her lunchtime lecture at the gibbes, audiences will enjoy a virtual tour through the 18th to the 21st century properties featured in the volume,” explains amy mercer, marketing and communications manager at the museum. “The lecture explores the two themes of the book — the south’s ‘pure and simple’ vernacular architecture and the ‘simple elegance’ with which homeowners

combine fine antiques with relaxed surroundings.” sully graduated from yale with a degree in art history, and she has had works published in The new york times, martha stewart living and town & country travel, among others. she often lectures at the smithsonian and sotheby’s and has a blog called The southern cosmopolitan (www.southern her lecture monday will begin at noon at the gibbes. tickets are $20 for members, $30 for nonmembers. all tickets include a boxed lunch.

date change

last week, i told you about the extremely different works of local favorites lisa shimko and hirona matsuda, who have had several shows together over the years.

in the information provided about their newest collaboration, “vagal tone,” an error was made on the date of the opening reception at michael mitchell gallery, 438 king st. The reception is 6-9 p.m. Friday. to refresh your memory, “vagal tone is the activity of the vagus nerve, the longest of the cranial nerves, which regulates the activities of our vocal cord, ears, facial muscles and heart rate. vagal tone is known to be linked to our emotional state, how we communicate with others and how we respond to stresses,” said chelsea steadman of the gallery. in this new show, the artists are creating works that are representative of the western model of “body as machine” and the eastern philosophy of “body as garden.” “This dichotomy is represented in shimko’s focus on organic subject matter and matsuda’s use of remnants of the industrial world. Both bodies of work focus on the idea of things connected and linked together: elements affecting each other in order to function, not unlike the wandering vagus nerve,” steadman said. call 564-0034 or go to www. michaelmitchellcharleston. com.

Theauctionforthe1999Cavendish Pairs generated comfortably over a million dollars, so everyone knew that good play would be rewarded. At the table where Neil Chambers and John Schirmer were South and North respectively, they managed to silence their opponents; when East opened one club, Chambers overcalled one diamond and Schirmer simply jumped to three no-trump, making nine tricks in comfort. But reaching the 4-4 heart fit was not easy when East-West could bid and raise clubs — and of course, the five-club sacrifice is relatively cheap. However, on our featured auction, Fred Gitelman finished in five diamonds, and when West

ledahelpfulheart,Gitelmanwon in hand, crossed to dummy with a trump to ruff a club, then drew a second trump. Next, he cashed the heart ace to get the bad news, and now he found the neat maneuver of leading the club king to pitch a low spade. East won his ace (ducking does not beat the hand as declarer would subsequently set up a spade) and could not safely give a ruff-sluff. In fact, East chose to play the spadeaceandleadanotherspade, hoping that his partner had the jack, and now Gitelman had a home for his heart loser. After winning the club ace, East had to underlead his spade ace-queen to beat the hand. Would you have thought of it?

Woman needs to end long-term relationship

may the force be with you d for this round of trivia By reBekah BradFord Special to the Post and Courier


he original “star wars” movie premiered on may 25, 1977, and has remained a touchstone for many. not too long ago, it was announced that J.J. abrams would be directing episode 7 of the film franchise, and fans of the original trilogy have their fingers crossed that it will live up to expectations. current head2head trivia champ steve zimmer will be going up against Brent norris.

File/lucasFilm ltd. & tm, via a&e/ap

ear aBBy: i am a divorcee with college-age children. i love my children, and i thought i loved my ex. however, after my divorce, i wonder if i’m capable of loving anyone other than my children again. two years after the divorce, i started a relationship with a man who is 10 years older. he recently had ended a longterm relationship. i wasn’t particularly drawn to him, but he was very persistent. we finally, jokingly, agreed to be “exclusively casual” and began dating. my children don’t dislike him; they are indifferent. we have been dating for six years. i do not love him. he, however, professes to adore me and wants us to spend our lives together. i do not want this to go on any longer. i have some serious health issues and i’m not interested in having him as my caretaker. he already has made plans for us to be together for this. i don’t want him doing this for me. he’s a good man. he deserves someone who wants the devotion he is so willing to give. how do i tell him to move on? i’m financially stable. he’s not after my money; he’s very comfortable on his own. i need to force him to go find a woman who needs or wants him. many of his friends think i take advantage of his feelings. i don’t want to be in this position any longer. — dragging my Feet in teXas DEAR DRAGGING YOUR FEET: The longer you put this off, the harder it will be, and if you don’t open your mouth, you are going to find yourself in exactly the position you say you don’t want to be. The magic words are: “ ‘John,’ I have enjoyed your friendship, but I’m not in love with you. I had hoped that as time passed I would fall in love with you, but it hasn’t happened, and now I realize it isn’t going to. I want to deal with my health issues on my own. I don’t want you to be my caretaker. What I do want is to end our relationship so you can find a woman who will love you

dear abby

the way you deserve to be loved. Sadly, that’s not me, but I wish you well — and goodbye.” Do not expect him to welcome this dose of reality, but those are the words that will set you and him free. dear aBBy: i am a veteran and while i have spent this past year in school, i can’t seem to connect with any of the younger students there. it’s disheartening, to be honest, and i feel it’s part of the reason i can’t enjoy school at my age (23) after all my experiences in combat. i can’t decide whether to drop out and join a private security company or tough it out and deal with these kids who don’t take education seriously. i miss work at the same time. any thoughts? — torn in milFord, conn. DEAR TORN: The students you describe are at a very different level of maturity than you, and I don’t mean chronologically. After having experienced combat, you have a different perspective on what’s important in life from someone who hasn’t been tested. You have earned the right to a college degree, so please don’t waste the opportunity. If you complete your education, you will have more career options than if you quit now. If you feel you want to go into security work after graduation, that option will still be open. Others may not be. dear abby is written by abigail van buren, also known as Jeanne phillips, and was founded by her mother, pauline phillips. write dear abby at www. or p.o. box 69440, los angeles, ca 90069.
