J.T. rocked. Fans expecting a
mellow, laid-back concert at the
Carowinds Palladium in Char
lotte Saturday night were sweetly
surprised by an energetic perfor
mance by James Taylor.
The Boston native, who as a
youngster lived in a specially
designed, ll-room house in
Chapel Hill, jumped around the
stage to "Summer's Here and
even did the Twist during his first
encore. He returned to the stage
twice more, delighting his
audience with "That's Why I'm
Here," "Carolina in My Mind"
and then "Sweet Baby James."
To the yuppie-college student
audience, Taylor could do no
wrong. They danced, tossed a
beach ball, which was later con
fiscated by roving security guards,
swayed and clapped. And when
the pace slowed to include classics
such as "Fire and Rain" and
"YouVe Got a Friend," the crowd
of about 8,200 sang too.
With such a positive, beach
party mood, it was disappointing
when Taylor responded to
shouted requests by holding up
a laminated list of scheduled
songs, which even included tunes
to be played as encores. It spoiled

But even with the sarcasm, the
concert gave fans what they
wanted favorite Taylor tunes
performed on a warm summer
night. Initial chords from "Steam
roller," "Up on the Roof" and
"Handy Man" elicited comments
of recognition followed by yells,
claps and absorption in the music.
Throughout the one
intermission show, Taylor
sprinkled selections from "That's
Why I'm Here," his latest album,
including "Turn Away" and "You
Are My Only One." Performing
the title track from the new album
was especially appropriate for
Saturday's show, as Taylor sang
of devoted fans who "pay good
money to hear Fire and Rain'
again and again and again."

Strong sound, however, was
not omitted as Taylor's voice
filled the outdoor arena with
clear, balanced tones. Backup
singing from Rosemary Butler,
clad in white lace and jewelry with
a Stevie Nicks look, was just as
resonant and displayed a voice as
rich as Taylor's. She and Arnold
McCuller, equally moving, added
gospelesque emotion and flair at
just the right moments.
Taylor, ever the gentleman,
even played backup to the pair
for one number and surrendered
the lead for two verses of "That's
Why I'm Here" as Butler and
McCuller stepped in.
Taylor's Carowinds perfor
mance focused on the band more
than other concerts, which nor
mally evoke a feeling of one-on-one.

Scots sell out ArtSchool crowd
The eclectic Scottish band, the
Tannahill Weavers, performed its
original, traditional-style music to a
sold-out crowd Friday night at the
ArtSchool in Carrboro.
The Tannahill Weavers, from
Paisley, Scotland, are so named
because of their hometown's weaving
industry and local poet Robert
Tannahill. The five-man band plays
a variety of instruments. Roy Gul
lane plays guitar and handles most
of the lead vocals, while other
founding member Phil Smillie plays
flute. Iain Maclnnes blows bagpipes,
specifically Highland pipes and small
pipes. Ross Kennedy strums the
bouzouki, and Stuart Morison plays
Friday's concert featured original
tunes off the Tannahill Weavers' new
album, "Land of Light," plus some
Irish reels and jigs. Why is a Scottish
musical group playing Irish tunes?
Maclnnes explains, "Everyone
knows that all the good Irish songs
came from Scotland, anyway."
The group played a combination

of soft and hard songs, some with
vocals, others without. The best
songs were the hard, driving ones
with the Highland pipes singing high,
the guitar and bouzouki chords
powerfully strummed, and the hard,
Scottish-accented vocals of Gullane
and Kennedy coming through. Such
songs had those in the back row of
the ArtSchool stomping their feet
and clapping their hands to provide
rhythm for the night.
The group's title track off the
"Land of Light" album may have
been the most alluring song per
formed. This song about peace was
sung a cappella by all the Weavers.
The group's creativity did not stop
there. For one song, Smillie and
Maclnnes played a duet with whis
tles. The most interesting sight and
sound of the whole night was
Woollen's madness is that a student
may go all over campus getting cards
rather than doing it all in the gym.
What are the advantages of using
this system? According to Lee
Meyer, assistant dean of General
College, departmental drop-add is a
useful system for specific course
"Most of what goes on in the gym
is a student saying, 'I don't want an
8 o'clock class, do you have anything
earlier?' " Meyer said. "Departmen
tal drop-add is mainly for students
who have one of two problems.
Either they've changed majors since

The Tannahill Weavers kept the
audience alive not only with their
music, but also with their dress.
During the last song of the second
set, piper Maclnnes left the stage
only to return in a kilt to play his
pipes. After the song, the crowd
promptly gave the Weavers a stand

schedule, or they simply can get the
course they want at any time."
Although the system is useful, it
has drawbacks, said Meyer. First of
all, students must contend with the
weather as they walk from one part
of the campus to another. Also, since
advisers have no way of knowing
whether a specific course is available,
students may walk all the way to a
department only to find out that they
can't get into their chosen course.
"We list alternative courses, but
sometimes even that doesn't work,"
Meyer said. "If none of those courses
are available, a student must go back
and forth between his adviser and
the various departments like a yo
yo." But for those who really need a
course that's filled, departmental
drop-add is the best way, he said.
For example, he said, six freshmen
who wanted to take Psychology 10
after it had been filled last year used
departmental drop-add. Within a
week and a half, they had the course
because others dropped it.
"Although departmental drop
add is a complex thing, I feel that
it is useful because it gives the student
an option," Meyer said.
