Start Your Busy Live Music Weekend at the Red Door Pub

David J. Russell at Red Door Pub

Dave Russell live tonight at the Red Door Pub and Grille

The Red Door Pub and Grille at the renovated Meaford Motel has the potential of adding a significant element to Meaford’s night life.  Since its renovation the Meaford Motel  (126 N Sykes) has offered lunch with a creative, fresh, local menu created by Chef Jordan Fraser, utilizing great ingredients in unique dishes. With the help from local supplier of Grandview Farms Berkshire Pork, Farm Fresh Eggs and Local Vegetable producer Royal Acre Farms, he is now expanding to dinner service.  To celebrate tonight the restaurant, now called The Red Door Pub will be featuring live music from Dave Russell, well known to local music fans as one of the warmest and most talented of our local crop of guitarists and singers.  He’ll be playing there tonight (Oct. 29th) from 8 to 11 so if everybody makes a point of dropping by the establishment will be encouraged to make live music a regular feature.

With this venue added to the lively music scene that has developed around The Leeky Canoe, Captains Corner and Meaford Hall, we are one step closer to making Meaford a year-round destination for lovers of live music.

But it is a busy weekend for live music in Meaford and surrounding towns, so you have a lot of options.

Amanda Dorey in Hepworth

Amanda Dorey plays Opry North show in Hepworth tonight

Fans of local country singer Amanda Dorey will want to make the drive to the Hepworth Shallow Lake Legion where she will be part of a big Opry North concert celebrating classic country music (and, just a reminder, if classic country makes your heart beat faster, set aside next Saturday, Nov. 5th, to head out to the Woodford Community Centre where Trish and The Tractors will be playing a country dance fueled by old time favourites – more info on this to come).

Don’t wait for the evening to start your enjoyment of live music.  Remember that the open stage at The Barn, hosted by Luke Martin, has moved to Saturdays, from 2 to 5.

If you’re heading out Owen Sound way, the great Krueger Band will be hosting a masquerade ball tonight at Heartwood Hall.  Every time this band plays it is a special event and this looks like a music lover’s best bet for a Halloween celebration.

Greg Smith at Heartwood Hall

In the opposite direction, you can catch husband and wife itinerant duo Winnie Brave, playing Americana style music at The Huron Club.  Their adventures as musicians on the road are similar to those of Lauren Mann and her husband Zoltan.  They will be playing a Sunday night concert at Heartwood Hall in Owen Sound featuring local singer-songwriter Greg Smith.  A great way to top off a weekend of excellent music.
