Interchange – Troubadours, Activists, and Acrobats: “A Show of Hats”

Play

Guest Host Andy Mahler is joined by the musicians performing in “A Show of Hats,” April 29th, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater: Dillon Bustin, Travis Puntarelli, and Marc Haggerty share the songs and stories that illustrate the power of community.

Guests
Travis Puntarelli is a troubadour in the traditional sense of the word. Born in California and raised in Bloomington, he was influenced by the diversity of this musical community. From early music events at IU to marching band at Bloomington North, from Player’s Pub to the Music Co-op, Travis has played throughout our community. He’s been taught and influenced by Anne Dunbar, Diane Demes, Janis Stockhouse, and Dr. Raymond Wise, among a wide array of musicians within the Bloomington community.

Dillon Bustin is a musician and songwriter who has had a profound and lasting effect on Bloomington. He writes about a wide variety of topics and experiences, including sailing on the ocean, boat building, homesteading, gardening and firewood. He reflects upon the humor of what we have all done to each other over the years and the situations we have made of our lives. Because of all this, his work transcends entertainment in its lasting importance to our community.

Aaron Comforty is a musician who plays, among many other instruments, guitar, bass, trumpet, and he also sings.

Marc Haggerty is a musician, an activist, and an acrobat. In no particular order.

New Location for Bloomington Hospital: IU Golf Course

Play

IU Health officials announced this morning they are changing the course of plans to relocate the Bloomington Hospital. The Hospital still plans to move out of its downtown location, a decision that has been unpopular with many Bloomington residents. But the new facility is now scheduled for construction on property that currently hosts the IU Golf Course, located on the northeast side of town along the bypass.

Before today, the plan had been to move west of city limits on North Park, where the hospital already owns land. Several officials, including Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan, IU President Michael McRobbie and IU Health Bloomington President Mark Moore, praised the new plan this morning.

The officials gave no indication of the time frame for the move, how much it will cost or exactly what infrastructure improvements might be needed to make it happen.

Audio of the full press conference is above.
