UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS
TOTAL DARKNESS TOURS
Sundays in March
Come see the Dark Side! Your guide will teach you about cave light – or should we say, the lack of it – along the underground trails. Experience the cave in a way not featured on regular tours – by handheld light only. Learn a bit about fluorescence, phosphorescence and triboluminescence along the way.
Barn Concert: Sparky and Rhonda Rucker
Friday, April 5 7:30 PM
You will hear soulful blues licks, heart-rending gospel, knee-slapping good rhythms, and bottleneck guitar slide. Over fifty years of performing, Sparky and Rhonda have performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival as well as NPR’s On Point, Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, and Morning Edition. Their recording, Treasures & Tears, was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award, and their music is also included on the Grammy-nominated anthology, Singing Through the Hard Times.
