Ted’s Range Road Diner

ted-s-range-road-dinerOut on Grey Rd. 112, the road that heads up to the military base at the west end of Meaford, Ted’s Range Rd. Diner is the most soulful venue in town featuring live jamming every Wednesday night.  It usually kicks off around 9 or 10 and runs until 1 in the morning.  This is a real electric jam with a house band of excellent players, most of whom developed their chops right here over the decades that the Wednesday night jam has been happening.  The great thing is that if you play drums, guitar or bass you can join in – it’s not just for singers.  Come for supper and enjoy a truly unique menu featuring a wide range of live game.  This is a licensed venue.

The Barn

the-marketLocated on Hwy. 26 at the east end of Meaford, The Barn is a co-operative that is focused on holistic living, sustainability, community involvement and local music.  It includes an organic grocery store and great food and coffee.  Sunday afternoons from two to around five there’s an open stage with hosts that revolve each month.  It’s a great venue, with a view of the highway and, because there is no alcohol served, it’s an ideal place for young people to get a taste of performing.
