LEGACY is an overused word. A great athlete, for example, may claim that hitting lots of home runs is his legacy. The founder of a business is said to be leaving a legacy to his children when they succeed him. 9 There are so many good things in Jordan Peele’s NOPE that it’s a shame the film doesn’t really work. It lacks the sociological snap of Get Out (2017) and Us (2019), it’s more self-indulgent than both, and ultimately doesn’t up to the sum of its parts — try as it might (and does). 14 It is no secret that our communities in the Triad suffer from FOOD INSECURITY. According to the Greater High Point Food Alliance, the Greensboro/ High Point area currently ranks number 14 in the entire nation for food insecurity. 18 SHOVELS & ROPE come to Winston-Salem to close out the second annual Summer Shindihg Concert Series at the Ramkat on August 10.

ROASTED BEETS TARTARE

Chow down with John Batchelor at Radici BY JOHN BATCHELOR According to the restaurant’s well-organized and informative website, “Radici” means roots or root vegetables in Italian. But Radici is not an Italian restaurant. The restaurant’s name refers to its vegan cuisine, first, and second, to an effort to grow roots in a devoted local following. Brian Ricciardi, the owner, is of Italian heritage, however. He grew up in New York, where he learned to love cooking

and eating from his Italian grandmother. He also owns Dom’s in Winston-Salem. Sean Sigmon, the chef, started out in his parents’ barbecue restaurant in Texas. He subsequently converted to vegetarianism and moved to Portland, Oregon, where he became involved in that area’s farm-to-table vegetarian movement. He came to North Carolina last year to be closer to family who live here and took over the kitchen at Radici. The interior looks rather sleek, with

a long bar lining most of one side. Wall décor reinforces the vegetable theme. No matter what your culinary proclivities, Radici serves some of the most attractively presented and flavorful food I’ve encountered in the Triad. The first section of the menu is labeled Snacks and Salads. I tried a Kale Caesar Salad and encountered tender leaves, a creamy sunflower dressing lightly applied, augmented by grilled onions and crumbled crackers. This looks and tastes very good. The fact that it is also very healthy just constitutes a bonus. Black Lentil Fritters are firm and crunchy. I am fond of lentil flavor, so these are easy to enjoy for me. A cultured herb aioli, spread across the top of the plate, lends accent. A few leaves of kale add color as well as nutrition. Roasted Beets Tartare is a visual knockout. A deep red cylinder encloses pieces of beets. A dollop of yogurt, scattered with pickled spices and fresh herbs, rests on top. Large wafers, made in-house from Anson Mills corn, oat, and benne seed flour, provides crunch as well as additional flavor. Certain dishes are almost certain to be winners. Fried Sweet Potatoes are a case in point. Locally grown, they burst with natural flavor, a function to some extent of roasting before frying, which develops natural sugars. Miso aioli laced with chili

oil completes the presentation. The next menu category is Small Plates. In general, I found these portions large enough to either share or complete a meal, in combination with one of the first courses. I never left Radici hungry, no matter what I ordered. Cast Iron Loaded Cabbage is shredded and sautéed, served just a little on the crunchy side — just right for me. Lots of capers create a sharp impact, mellowed by a preserved lemon dressing, plus pieces of apricot and olives. Although the cabbage flavor stands in the forefront, the other ingredients combine to create a high level of complexity. Carolina Gold Shiitake Dirty Rice hosts diced roasted shiitake mushrooms, pumpkin seeds, and charred onions, dusted with a Mediterranean herb blend. The mushrooms and onions constitute a classic combination. I would add that this rice is a heritage product from Anson Mills, and it is gratifying to actually taste the rice itself, as opposed to the bland white rice that requires some other treatment to give it any significant taste. Roasted Cauliflower, decorated with Swiss chard, is another visual knockout. The main ingredient provides al dente texture, its natural flavor extracted by skillful heat. Firm (but not hard) carrots, plus clipped green onions add flavor. This rests in a cumin-enhanced cauliflower puree. It tastes as good as it looks.

From the Large Plates section of the menu, I ordered Polenta with Oyster Mushrooms. The polenta itself is another Anson Mills heritage product, richly flavorful in its own right. The mushrooms are pan-roasted. Oyster mushrooms are inherently more flavorful than their white or button brethren, and that natural flavor comes through clearly here. Swiss chard is cooked in with the mushrooms, and the process yields a deeply flavorful gravy that is highly enjoyable when swirled into the polenta. I skipped dessert, but I will try something on a future visit. The most frequent request I receive from readers centers on finding vegetarian food, so I know there is a vegetarian demand out there. Candidly, though, I do not know whether there are enough vegans in Greensboro to establish and maintain a following numbered exclusively from that clientele. Obviously, Radici gets a solid recommendation for that segment of the culinary community. No one else is doing what this restaurant is doing, and they are doing what they do very well, indeed.

LAM Museum of Anthropology Embraces International Student Realities

A

mong Wake Forest University’s hidden treasures stands the LAM Museum of Anthropology on the edge of its Reynolda campus. Initially Dalia Razo inaugurated as the Museum of Man in 1963, the institution Contributor underwent a name change in 1987 to the Museum of Anthropology before finally settling on its current name, the Timothy S.Y. Lam Museum of Anthropology as of last year. Along with name changes, the museum has also experienced location changes throughout the years and as of August of last year is found in Palmer Hall. For a long time, the museum was simply a teaching museum for WFU students and their studies, and most objects in the museum were items that professors owned or had brought back from their travels. When the museum was moved to a public space in Reynolda Village during the 1970s, it expanded its activities to community outreach and the active collection of objects. Into the 1990s, its focus shifted to connecting WFU students to the broader Piedmont public, encouraging them to develop exhibits that would benefit education programs for visiting K-12 students. While the museum has not held public programs on-site over the summer, it has an established presence throughout Forsyth County Public Libraries providing elementary and teenage students with craft projects and artifacts from the museum. However, within the institution, the museum currently provides the space for some student-developed exhibits, in particular, Guī Shù Gǎn: Between Belonging and Isolation in the WFU Chinese Community. Curated by now WFU alumni, Hex Li, who YES! WEEKLY

AUGUST 3-9, 2022

graduated this past spring with a major in sociology and minor in art and anthropology, Guī Shù Gǎn:, was the result of Li’s personal experience as an international undergraduate student from China along with the experiences of 10 other Chinese international students she conducted ethnographic research with. A student of Dr. Andrew Gurstelle, assistant teaching professor in the anthropology department and current academic director of the museum, Li initially had a different idea for her final exhibit. “When we were talking about this last fall, her big exhibit idea was mythological creatures from around the world,” said Gurstelle. “She was going to go into our collection of about 30,000 artifacts and look for objects that reflected monsters and creatures from mythical stories.” Between the fall and spring semesters, Li had a transformative experience with another one of her professors and upon returning to campus, expressed her desire to move in a different direction. Leaving mythical creatures behind, Li focused on developing an exhibit in which she could show her experience, and that of her friends, living in a place for the past four years with a sense of isolation. Immersing herself in the concept of belonging, having or lacking a sense of belonging, and even creating a sense of belonging, she created Guī Shù Gǎn:, roughly translated from Chinese “Sense of Belonging.” With only one semester to design and

curate Guī Shù Gǎn: Li was determined to base the exhibit on some form of empirical research, highlighting how international Chinese students are forced to navigate between invisibility and hypervisibility. During their time at WFU their ideas may not be appreciated, or even taken seriously while being singled out for fashion that is unfamiliar in the United States yet trending in their home country, or using a parasol to preserve brightening, a common skincare practice in China. These attitudes toward international Chinese students and their culture worsened with the arrival of COVID-19 and the increase of anti-Asian racism. Li wanted to emphasize these issues and articulate to spectators that international Chinese students experience isolation when studying abroad, becoming particularly sensitive to ideas of invisibility and connection following the pandemic. Currently, about 10 percent of the WFU student population is made up of international students. In addition to interviewing other students for Guī Shù Gǎn:, Lin was able to collect and curate objects contributed by the 10 interviewees that made them feel either connected or isolated due to their culture during their experience at WFU. These include ticket stubs from concerts or theater performances in China, Chinese paper cuts, stuffed toy animals, snacks, a parasol, and even a social media video with a Lunar Year greeting. As Gurstelle supported Li through her

creative process, he also pushed her to consider the possibilities of making the exhibit interactive to embody the message behind Guī Shù Gǎn:. Li created an isolation booth that stands towards the end of the exhibit, bringing a bittersweet close to her work as the spectator is invited to step into the booth and experience both isolation and hypervisibility through the interactive use of UV lights. Zhīqīu “Michelle” Ye, one of Gurstelle’s students from Beijing, China, is taking his Museum Studies summer course. A rising sophomore, she aspires to double major in psychology and anthropology and one day work for the Palace Museum in Beijing. An admirer of the LAM Museum of Anthropology and its purpose, Ye particularly appreciates the museum’s dedication to detailing artifact’s functions and cultural significance. In regards to Guī Shù Gǎn:, Ye appreciates the exhibit but sees room for growth. “China has many different regions, and for myself being from Beijing, some of the exhibit artifacts may not necessarily fit my family’s background or my friends’ family backgrounds,” Ye said. “In general it shows the international Chinese student experience in their daily life, it’s definitely a good theme, but perhaps addressing spirituality would make it more complete.” On the other hand, Ye greatly admires Li’s ability to put the exhibit together under limited time conditions and resources. Guī Shù Gǎn: proves the museum’s commitment to not only the study of global cultures past and present but to ongoing global issues highlighted from a post-pandemic world. Guī Shù Gǎn:: Between Belonging and Isolation in the WFU Chinese Community is on display through March 2023. The museum is located in Palmer Hall on Wake Forest University’s Reynolda Campus and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free. !

Bob Shackleford: a Selfless Legacy

egacy is an overused word. A great athlete, for example, may claim that hitting lots of home runs is his legacy. The founder of a business is said to be leaving a Jim Longworth legacy to his children when they succeed him. Kids whose Longworth parents graduated at Large from an Ivy League University are automatically accepted in those elite schools because they are “legacy” students. But I believe the true meaning of the word has more to do with selflessness than with entitlement. That’s why when I look in the dictionary under the word “legacy,” there’s a picture of my friend Bob Shackleford. Bob recently stepped down as President of Randolph Community College after serving in that position for 15 years, but he has been in education for most of his life. His journey to Asheboro included

earning degrees in everything from secondary education to a Ph.D. in human development, and a Master of Divinity. He has been a teacher and a military chaplain, and along the way, he’s chaired everything from United Way campaigns to Economic Development Corporations. Yet, as impressive as Bob’s resume is, his accomplishments while serving as RCC President are even more so. He built a state-of-the-art Allied Health Center, created a computer-integrated machining institute, expanded the welding center, nurtured a world-class photography department, negotiated an agricultural exchange program with an eastern NC university, created a student emergency fund, kept an apprenticeship program thriving even during the pandemic, and he started a student assistance program that helped to break down barriers to succeeding in college. “Most of the problems we deal with students are not academic. They wrestle with life, whether it’s taking care of children or an elderly parent, or dealing with health problems like depression or substance abuse. What we can do as a College is to help them,” said Bob.

And, helping students PHOTO COURTESY OF succeed is at the heart of RANDOLPH COMMUNITY COLLEGE Bob’s legacy, as he told me during a conversation we had on “Triad Today” earlier this year. Jim: Why did you go into the education field? Bob: Well Jim I grew up very poor. My family and I lived in a little trailer and moved around because of my Dad’s work, and I didn’t have a prayer. I didn’t know what I wanted to be or ever could be. And my Mom told me, “If you get your education and work hard, you can be anything you want to be.” I got my education, I’ve lived my dream, and I’m passing along the gift she gave to me to other students who are where I was. Jim: It would take us a few hours to list all your accomplishments, but Dr. Shackleford let’s talk about a couple of them, starting with your role We now have a state-of-the-art, highas one of the driving forces behind the tech allied health center with a simulated development of the Guilford/Randolph hospital, and it’s going to create jobs that mega site.

It lacks the sociological snap of Get Out (2017) Contributor and Us (2019), it’s more self-indulgent than both, and ultimately doesn’t up to the sum of its parts — try as it might (and does). Nope reunites writer/producer/director Peele with Daniel Kaluuya, his leading man in Get Out, the film that won Peele the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and Kaluuya a nomination for Best Actor. Kaluuya, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Judas and the Black Messiah (2021), plays Otis Haywood Jr., the proprietor of a ranch in a remote corner of California that specializes in training horses for film and television — which allows Peele to incorporate some history and some satire surrounding the medium. Otis, better known as O.J. (which is good for a few laughs), and younger sister Emerald (Keke Palmer) are struggling to keep the ranch afloat following the sudden, tragic death of their father, Otis Sr. (reliable Keith David), but it’s not long before they’re struggling against something else — a nocturnal phenomenon that indicates their ranch, and the surrounding region, is

directly on the flight path of a UFO. Steven Yeun plays Ricky “Jupe” Park, a former child star that now runs a Wild West theme park near the Haywood ranch. Ricky has his own backstory, which parallels — to an extent — the strange doings currently taking place — but not enough to justify the amount of screentime devoted to it. Indeed, this subplot could have been dropped entirely and it would have little or no bearing on the overall film. Like M. Night Shyamalan, whose career he resembles in some respects, Peele generally focuses on tight-knit ensemble casts and has a knack for creating effective, unsettling build-ups, but in the case of Nope there’s the mounting — and not inaccurate — concern that the pay-off will be a letdown. It’s never clearly explained what the threat is or where it comes from, and although such things aren’t neces-

MOVIE REVIEWS PRESENTED BY

sary in a genre film, there’s a difference between ambiguity and vagueness, and Nope tends to fall into the latter category. Although ultimately disappointing, Nope isn’t a total loss. The cinematography, by Hoyte Van Hoytema (an Oscar nominee for 2017’s Dunkirk), and the score by Michael Abels (who also scored Get Out and Us) are both first-rate,

and Peele’s affinity for the genre is evident throughout. He doesn’t look down on it. Just the reverse, he’s always trying to elevate it. As befits the Western setting, Kaluuya’s O.J. is the strong, silent type — a credible everyman/loner who can effortlessly express emotions through facial expression and physical movement rather than dialogue, and Palmer provides a nice contrast with her hip, flip turn as the sassy, outgoing Emerald. Providing a touch of levity, if not outright comic relief, is Brandon Perea’s Angel, the loquacious computer wiz who wires their ranch with surveillance cameras and gets caught up in the proceedings. It’s also nice to have Michael Wincott (enjoying his best screen role in some time), Donna Mills, Osgood Perkins, Alex Hyde-White, Yeun, and David on hand, although the latter hasn’t much to do express a few words of homespun wisdom and expire on-camera before the story really gets going. !

[NEWS OF THE WEIRD] MISTAKEN IDENTITY

Christie Louise Jones, 49, of Richfield, North Carolina, was likely looking for revenge on a former boyfriend on July 22; instead, she got Chuck Shepherd charged with arson and other crimes, the Salisbury Post reported. On that day, at a house in Gold Hill, a woman called the Rowan County Sheriff ’s Office to say a woman unknown to her was outside her home, trying to set it on fire. The arson attempt started with a pile of burning wood on the front porch; while trying to reach the hose, the homeowner realized his propane tank was also on fire, and his hose had been blocked with sealant to make it inoperable. That’s when he noticed a car parked across his driveway and a woman standing beside it. When he approached her, he said, “She looked at me like she didn’t know who I was” — and she didn’t. She drove away but was later apprehended; deputies said her ex-boyfriend owns property in the area. Just not THAT property.

ON A MISSION

On July 22, Corey Johnson, 29, of Ocala, Florida, attempted to enter the Patrick Space Force Base in Brevard County with a special message from President Joe Biden: Johnson claimed Biden had told him to steal a 2013 Ford F150 from Riviera Beach, then drive it to the base to let them know that U.S. aliens were fighting Chinese dragons. Fox35 Orlando reported that Johnson was apprehended outside the base and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle.

MARKETING PLOY?

Citing confusingly contradictory reasons, Klondike announced on July 26 that it is discontinuing its beloved Choco Taco ice cream treat, the Associated Press reported. The confection, invented in 1983 by a former ice cream truck driver, has rabid fans; Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian offered to buy the rights to keep it on the market, but Klondike’s parent, Unilever, didn’t respond. Later the same day, Klondike tweeted that it was “working hard” to bring the Choco Taco back “in the coming years.”

100-pound sailfish when it leapt out of the water, The Washington Post reported. Katherine Perkins, from Arnold, Maryland, was stabbed in her groin area by the fish’s pointed bill as her companions tried to reel it in. The boat returned to shore and Perkins was airlifted to a hospital.

THAT’S ONE WAY TO DO IT

— On July 25, the Curry County (Oregon) Sheriff’s Office received a call from the U.S. Forest Service about fires burning in the county, CNN reported. An employee of the Bureau of Land Management had reportedly seen a man walking along a gravel road, starting fires. As crews on the ground got the blazes under control, three area residents spotted 30-year-old Trennon Smith walking near the fires, Sheriff John Ward said. “It was reported that the suspect became very combative with the three residents and had to be tied to a tree to subdue him,” Ward added. Ward said Smith had allegedly set the fires in a manner that would block residents from escaping. He was charged with firstdegree arson, second-degree arson and reckless burning. — Dean Mayhew 30, of Sussex, England, has a bad habit of forgetting his Tesco loyalty card when he goes grocery shopping, the Daily Record reported. The scaffolder and father of seven said he visits the store up to three times a day, so the savings really add up if he can get the discounts. So Mayhew got the QR code from his card tattooed on his forearm — and it works perfectly. “Sometimes I’m not the cleverest of guys but (people have) said that for me, it’s pretty genius,” Mayhew said. “Every time I go in there, they’re shocked. I could use the one on my phone but I want to use the one on my arm as it’s funny.”

EWWWWW

A steward on a SunExpress flight from Ankara, Turkey, to Dusseldorf, Germany, discovered a disturbing addition to an in-flight meal on July 21: a severed snake’s head nestled among the spinach. The steward took a video, Metro News reported, but SunExpress took offense: “The allegations and shares in the press regarding in-flight food service are absolutely unacceptable and a detailed investigation has been initiated on the subject,” a statement read. The airline’s meals are provided by Sancak Inflight Services, which alleged the snake head was added to the meal after they prepared it. Ssssssssso sssssssuspicious. !

Blowing his Horn: Veteran musician Scott Adair on playing with musical greats

O

ne of Scott Adair’s favorite memories is what Ella Fitzgerald said to him when he played with her and the Greensboro Symphony in 1983. Ian McDowell “A lot of symphonies don’t have their Contributor own saxes, and have to hire adjunct players when a show calls for that instrument. And Ella’s famous arrangement of ‘Summer Time’ includes a tenor sax solo.” When Adair tours with the Temptations and the Four Tops, he plays the big baritone sax, but the smaller tenor instrument is what he studied at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. “I was very fortunate to be picked, and just watching and listening to her sent chills down my spine.” After Adair’s solo, Fitzgerald told him to take a bow. “She said ‘He sounds so good, I want to take him on the road with me,’ and my head was so big, I could barely get out the door! Martha Long, who did the society column for the News & Record, wrote that Ella wanted to take me on tour. You can’t buy press like that!” YES! WEEKLY

AUGUST 3-9, 2022

He also treasures the two shows he played in Florida with Aretha Franklin. “She was another legend I was excited as hell to work with. At her entrance, I guess she could tell how enthralled I was, and she blew me a kiss.” But Adair also has fond memories of growing up in a beloved downtown Greensboro music store in the 1950s. In 1939, his grandfather Lewis Moore founded Moore Music Company at 615 West Market Street. “After the war, he talked my dad, Howard Adair, into becoming his manager. When I was born in 1950, we moved into a little stucco house behind the store that had been used for storing pianos.” In 1974, his original home, like the store it was located behind, was consumed in a fire while he was studying in Boston. “When I got home for Christmas Break, it looked like a musical instrument version of World War II — keyboards with all the keys melted together, drums that looked like Salvador Dali paintings — and I have so much respect for the way Dad rebuilt from that. The original store had been an antebellum mansion, but he replaced it with something more functional, which now has its own 50 years of history.” After graduating summa cum laude from Berklee, Adair returned to Greensboro in 1977. He played with the local version of the venerable Swamp Cats,

reformed the previous year by old-time music aficionado Ted Tarrier. But his main staple was what he called general business gigs, playing restaurants, wedding receptions, company parties, and country clubs. In the early 90s, Adair joined the group now known as the Carolina Horns. “Ray Alexander, a trumpet player from Charlotte, made a good connection with the musical directors of the Four Tops and The Temptations. He would bring his horn section, including me, to their East Coast gigs.” Fifteen years ago, Alexander suffered serious health problems. “Since then, I’ve been in charge of that horn section, and we’ve done some great things, including playing at Carnegie Hall, and in a show called The Four Tops and The Temptations on Broadway, at the famous Palace Theater.” They also played on the west coast and in Europe. Besides Ella and Aretha, Adair accompanied Ray Charles, Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Michael Feinstein, and Wayne Newton; comedians Bob Hope, Bob Newhart and Jerry Lewis; actress/singers Rita Moreno and Bernadette Peters; and a midriff-baring sixties bombshell who made multiple Triad appearances in the decades since she starred in I Dream of Jeanie. “Back in the late 80s, Barbara Eden did

Scott Adair a show at a combination skating rink and auditorium off of Wendover, where she sang standards and told showbiz stories.” He’s played with such famous big bands as the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, with whom he did three tours, and the orchestras of Guy Lombardo, Henry Mancini and Cab Calloway, the latter at the Carolina Theater of Greensboro shortly after that iconic singer, songwriter, dancer, and bandleader appeared in the 1980s The Blues Brothers. Not to mention Soul and R&B legends Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Coasters, the Platters, and on many treasured occasions, the Temptations and the Four Tops, with whom Adair has a history going back more than 20 years. “These are what they call the original Temps and Tops, although there’s only one original member in each band; Otis Williams in the Temptations and the Four Tops’ Duke Fakir. But the Tops and Temptations are just as good as they ever were. They carry their own rhythm section with them, but there’s ten adjunct horns that they have to pick up in every city. That’s where we come in, as we’re familiar faces that they don’t have to rehearse. When we started with them in the 90s, we’d play Las Vegas two or three times a year, and tour the northeast. We also toured England, which was really fabulous.” He lamented that the Temps and the

Scott Adair & Shelby J Tops don’t play as many big outdoor gigs as they used to. “The outdoor venues seem to want younger acts. But the Temptations are still sharp as tacks, in their choreography and funky energy, and the Tops still have their rich harmonies. I’d call one of them more energetic, and the other more orchestral.” He’s played country music with Billy Ray Cyrus, Brenda Lee, and fellow Greensboro native Billy “Crash” Craddock. “In 2007, he needed a sax player for his Australian tour. He didn’t use saxophone all that much, but every single one of his big hits Down Under had sax solos, usually by Boots Randolph, and for that tour, he needed a sax guy. He didn’t know me, but we had connections.” Besides Carnegie Hall and the Carolina Theater, Adair has played the Stardust and MGM in Vegas, the Paris Hilton, Disney World, Universal Studios, and Bill Clinton’s inaugural ball at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. When interviewed at his lovely home on Stevendale Road, where he uses tethered balloons to ward off the rowdy gaggle of Canadian geese that befoul his neighbors’ lawns (“something bobbing in the air at eye level freaks them out and they keep away”), Adair particularly wanted to talk about his previous evening’s musical experience as an audience WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM

member rather than a performer. It was the first time in years he’d seen rising star Shelby J, the subject of our July 20 cover story “From Background to Center Stage.” In that article, Shelby talked about what she learned from Prince, but also what she learned from Scott Adair, back when she sang in Greensboro “at any club that would have me.” “Scott Adair would let me come in and just jam with him,” she said to YES! Weekly editor Chanel Davis. “He told me that I needed a Real Book so I could learn all the jazz standards. He said ‘the more you know, the further you can go.’” When contacted about this article, Adair expressed his delight at our coverage of his former student and said he wanted to talk about her when interviewed. “My main thing from the time I came back to Greensboro in 1977 until well into the new millennium was my general business band. We would do ballroom events, corporate functions, and so many weddings that I now have nightmares about them. But better memories of this little restaurant called Spices on South Holden, with a largely Black clientele and a real good vibe.” In charge of hiring the bands for that venue was emcee and promoter Ronald “Big E” Eldridge, who also owned the Shades of Blue nightclub in Winston-

Salem, and passed away in 2019. “The Big E had hired me several times. One day, he said, ‘Scott, I’ve got this girl at Smith High School, and I want you to let her sit in with you.’ And I thought, oh shit, not some high school kid. But then she sat in with us and just blew my socks off. I was so impressed with her; I started having her over here. She knew a lot of pop music, but maybe not many jazz standards. So, we would take a standard, and I would play the melody and let her look at the words, and she would sing and I’d play the chords behind her. And man, she just nailed it.” Adair called her one of the most natural talents he ever met. “You hear a lot of musicians and singers that are good, and some that are really good, and then you hear a few with that intangible quality can’t explain. And that was Shelby, who was ready for prime time when she was seventeen.” He wanted to ask her to sing more gigs with his general business band. “But by the time I called her for that, somebody had snatched her up, and she was already out on the cruise ships.

Then she moved to New York and worked that, and next I knew, she was working for Prince. But I had the joy of spending time with her before all that, just going over some material and checking out her ability to sing different styles. We communicated a few times, but her sitting in at Spices and then coming here and working with me were the only two real personal interactions.” But those interactions had made a profound impact. “I never forgot her name and how she sounded.” On Friday the 28th at the Crown, Adair said Shelby was selling her merchandise after the show, and there was a very long line. “She hadn’t seen me in about 30 years, and yelled ‘Scott Adair!’ and jumped out from behind that table and hugged me, and we talked like it was old times. She remembered me just like I remembered her, and I’ll always treasure that.” !

Kitchenology Grand Opening Nourishes Local Food Education It is no secret that our communities in the Triad suffer from food insecurity. According to the Greater High Point Food Alliance, the Greensboro/ High Point area currently Dalia Razo ranks number 14 in the entire nation for food insecurity. Contributor However, less than a decade ago, it ranked at the top, and Jonathan Seelig, co-founder of the nonprofit Homegrown Heroes, committed at that moment to give back to a community he has lived in for the past 15 years and pay it forward with food education for all. Growing up with a single mom and five siblings, Seelig remembers experiencing poverty as a family and watching community-based organizations such as churches and fire stations provide and deliver food to them at different times. Additionally, he was misdiagnosed as a child, and spent time in and out of various group homes and juvenile detention centers preventing him from thriving as a young man. This difficult chapter allowed him to find a purpose and see the power of education while his mother pursued a YES! WEEKLY

career as a physician’s assistant, finally pulling the family out of poverty. “When I got to the juvenile detention center, I felt so lost, and I thought I was a problem to my family, to my school, to my teachers, and I just didn’t know how to be of help,” Seelig said. “But I remember thinking that if there was ever anything I could do, I just wanted to be a mentor to youth, to help kids in my situation, so this nonprofit definitely means a lot to me.” Seelig is now actively mentoring, helping, and even educating youth along with an entire community. Noting High Point’s alarming food insecurity toward the end of 2014, the first High Point Food Security Summit was scheduled for 2015 to stop hunger. During this time, Seelig was studying graphic design at Guilford Technical Community College and created the concept and branding for Homegrown Heroes as a class project. What began as a food education kit is now a successful nonprofit helping High Point and its surrounding areas develop and establish ongoing food security. Seelig, who holds an associate degree in Graphic Design from GTCC, is currently studying nutrition at UNCGreensboro. It was also at the Food Security Summit that Seelig met Chef N’Gai Dickerson, a graduate of GTCC’s Culinary Program and an executive chef with years of experi-

ence in commercial kitchens. Dickerson immediately warmed up to Seelig’s idea for Homegrown Heroes and has since partnered and collaborated with him on the development of food education programming with various communitybased organizations and nonprofits. “We just kind of kept growing over the years, helping to develop the bigger network of the food system partnerships within High Point and the Triad,” said Seelig. Homegrown Heroes has utilized recreation centers, libraries, and other community organizations to bring its food education programming to those in need. They now have a permanent home in the commercial teaching kitchen, Kitchenology. While the latter had a soft opening this past April, it didn’t actually open until this past month of July and is scheduled to have its grand opening on Saturday, August 6. The teaching kitchen will function as a social enterprise to “Feed Food Education Forward,” the organization’s slogan. Homegrown Heroes will continue providing cooking classes to the community through Kitchenology and is currently operated by nutrition students from UNCG under the guidance of Chef Ross Bolen. Trained at the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts, Bolen is also a registered nurse and trains students to apply their nutritional knowledge in their

leadership of the community cooking classes. Additionally, as Executive Chef of Kitchenology, Bolen develops health-focused menu items and ”Lunch and Learn” catering for the nonprofit. Fusing his two areas of expertise, Bolen developed an understanding of food as well as the health disparities in the world. Adding a love for teaching to the mix, he found renewed purpose in Kitchenology. The teaching kitchen has also been made possible due to the dedication and work of the nutrition students that come through the door. While most of these students come from UNCG, Seelig is hopeful to get students from other universities to work in the kitchen. The teaching kitchen is currently serving lunch to the public three days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from which revenue generated by the sale of food products pays for community cooking classes and allows Homegrown Heroes to offer free meals to those in need. Following its upcoming grand opening, Kitchenology’s community cooking classes are scheduled to take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. For general classes open to the public, Kitchenology invites its participants to consider donating within their financial possibilities in an effort of helping pay for somebody else’s enrollment who may

not be able to afford it. Saturday’s grand opening will be free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated. Seelig seeks to change the mindset of charity through Kitchenology, entirely designed to be available to every person in the community without making anyone feel singled out for lacking resources. Committed to highlighting the overall value in everyone benefitting from learning how to cook, the teaching kitchen will continue offering programs designed to meet the specific needs of hunger, food insecurity, and diet-related health issues such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Healthy food prescription pilot programs will require people to qualify prior to enrolling.

WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM

“My big hope and takeaway for the grand opening is for people to come out and experience what it’s like to share food together again,” said Seelig. “Ever since COVID-19 put us in isolated worlds, I just want people to experience what it’s like to enjoy good, wholesome food, to share food that has a cause to it, to recognize you can enjoy good quality food in a community setting, and to feel good about the food that you are eating and buying.” Kitchenology’s grand opening is Saturday, August 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 2107 Kirkwood St. Suite 101 in High Point. !

hovels & Rope come to WinstonSalem to close out the second annual Summer Shindihg Concert Series at the Ramkat on August 10. The two-person Katei Cranford folk-rock family band featuring married couple, Cary Ann Contributor Hearst and Michael Trent, Shovels & Rope’s Winston show will kick off a new leg of the “Manticore Tour,” running through the fall in support of their latest album. Practically “On Tour Forever,” the couple is hardly strangers to the area. In the 12 years since one of their first Triad appearances (at the Old Winston Social Club in 2010), they’ve returned a handful of times — playing the Gears and Guitars Festival in 2016 — and building their own High Water Festival in their hometown of Charleston, that’s been running since 2017. Sharing an unending tour, they’ve played the world — recently returning from a European leg — truth be told, they’re hardly strangers anywhere anymore. And in the 10 years since releasing their first official album “O’ Be Joyful,” they’ve been the subject of the “The Ballad of Shovels & Rope” documentary, put out their own “Shovels & Rope: The Movie,” and had a couple of kids — all of which have played over a total six full-length records and three volumes of the “Busted Jukebox” collaborative series of recorded covers. Continuing to tackle aspects of life in story and song, “Manticore,” their latest album (released in February) hits a bit closer to home — hard and raw, “it’s not heavy metal,” Trent noted, “but in our guts, it feels a bit like Heavy Metal.” Drifting from their original idea of a more stripped-down record featuring only acoustic guitar and piano to accompany their voices, the final, fuller, product reflects notions which resonate throughout the material itself. As Shovels & Rope, and the rest of the world, have been reminded over the past couple years: things rarely turned out as planned. The songs themselves were polished in New Orleans, at a Decatur St. house YES! WEEKLY

belonging to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. And as the pandemic halted most aspects of life and the entertainment industry, “Manticore” took a new tone. And with that, like most recent releases, making the record brought something of a relief. “I was grateful to have something to work on,” Trent explained. “To go into the shop every day for a few hours, get into something, exercise parts of my brain, and feel excited about something when there really wasn’t a whole lot to feel excited about at the time.” The duality of working toward something during a time of lackluster uncertainty put a stamp on the album. Visceral and heavy, with a sense of light somewhere down the line. When Hearst and Trent first embarked on Shovels & Rope, the concept of a working married-couple band seemed almost perilous, nearly a dozen years in, their marriage (and career) remains strong. Though tracks like “Divide & Conquer,” imagine a world where it didn’t — the

working title, “Bummerham,” plays on a humorous reflection bookending their award-winning “Birmingham” single off “O’ Be Joyful.” Both songs offer an embellishment of real-life encounters, with “Divide & Conquer” taking a fictional glimpse into a less joyful future. Splits and schisms. Divorce and shared custody. A hard, honest look at partnerships, love and bedrock support. The challenges couples face in a world of no guarantees, laid candid and intentionally direct. “It was like...no more mister nice guys, the polish is off, the humanity is in,” Hearst said. “The shiny perceptions or previous ideas of what we are, or are expected to be, are being mildly challenged in some of these songs in a different kind of way. In some ways, it’s funny that we are addressing it now because our marriage is stronger than it’s ever been.” A raw and real perspective dominates the album. Modern women in modern families in “Collateral Damage.” Pulsing

beats and pop culture sleaze on “Domino.” The troubled headspace of “Human Race.” Feelings flow — waxing and waning in intensity — though likely most joyful on “Bleed Me,” an open and honest heartfelt letter to their children. Examined through the lens of parenthood; and overall gratitude for the gifts it brings — changes, exhaustion, and all. “I love how heavyhanded it is, a little bit like screaming at the top of your lungs...My heart breaks every time we sing ‘you are the best part,’” Hearst said. “That lyric means everything.” Digging new ground on the familiar floor of human experience, “Manticore” hits the highs and lows of life’s chapters as they open and close. Toiling and laughing and making music. Touring forever. Shovels & Rope will close out the Second Annual Summer Shindihg Concert Series, with Kyshona, at the Ramkat on August 10. !

[CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels are rising, and you feel like you can handle anything that the job requires. While that’s great, don’t isolate yourself. Keep your door open to your workplace colleagues for sound advice. [LEO (July 23 to August 22) A workplace change could lead to that promotion you’ve been hoping for. But you’ll have to face some tough competition before the Lion can claim his or her share of the goodies. [VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your rigidity regarding a difficult workplace situation could be the reason your colleagues aren’t rushing to your assistance. Try being more flexible in your demands. [LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) That uneasy mood could be your Libran inner voice reminding you that while it’s
