Visitors to the site can tour the sugaring operations and learn about the process. Depending on the weather throughout the syrup season and the continued availability of good sap, the evaporator may still be operating. Visitors will also be able to purchase bottled maple syrup, maple candies, maple cream, do-it-yourself maple tree tapping kits and books related to maple syrup, and sample refreshments made with maple syrup. Jellies made onsite by volunteers will also be available to sample and purchase. Indiana Maple Syrup Weekend is sponsored by the Indiana Maple Syrup Association with participating sugar makers around the state opening their operations to the public for one or both days. The farmstead is owned and maintained by Bloomington Restorations, Inc. and is free and open to the public. Details about statewide sugar camp activities can be found at www.IndianaMapleSyrup.org or on the “Indiana Maple Syrup Weekend” Facebook page.

Robert Cray

08:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/10363402

Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between blues, soul, and R&B for the past four decades, with five Grammy wins, a Blues Hall of Fame induction, an Americana Lifetime achievement award, countless tours, and more than 20 acclaimed albums.
Robert Cray and The Robert Cray Band – and most recently Robert Cray with Hi Rhythm – went on to release more than 20 albums and EPs, consistently charting, receiving Grammy recognition, and attracting a broad audience. Following the path of fame taken by blues-based rockers like Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cray became a sensation, leading his band in concerts at large arenas and major music festivals. He was the first African American artist since Jimi Hendrix to rise to such fame in rock music.

Doors will open at 7:30pm for this reserved seating show. Robert Cray will perform with the Robert Cray Band. The opening performer has not yet been announced.
