January 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Haliburton has a happening music scene. Most every weekend, and some week nights, there is great live music featuring local and touring acts! There are also 2 welcoming Open Stages a month in the Village.
HALIBURTON COUNTY FOLK SOCIETY
Open Stage 3rd Sat. of every Month currently held at the Heritage House Cafe.
Join the Folk Society at the Heritage House, just a 4 min. jaunt from downtown, for their monthly Open Stage. There is a huge wealth of local talent in Haliburton, and it comes out to play! Everyone is welcome and many a HSTA student has rocked the stage in the past. Not just for lovers of folk music!
Open Stage. 1st Wed. of the Month 4ish to 6ish.
Join the young folks at McKecks the first Wed. of every Month for an early evening coffee house. From 4ish to 6ish or when the music stops, the back stage features up and coming young Haliburton performers backed by local talent Carl Dixon. And now you’re thinking but, uh thats right around dinner? McKecks offers the Fleming Nachos which at $16.00 is much more than just nachos, it is a massive helping of nachos with chicken and guacamole plus all the regular fixins…it feeds 4 people (just $4.00 per person.)
McKecks also books regular local and traveling acts. Check out their upcoming events here.
THE DOMINION HOTEL
Open Stage Every Friday 8:30pm
A juant down to Minden is well-worth group cab fare, for the “DAM JAM” is a well-attended rocking night. A weekly affair with covers of Modest Mouse to original fare, there is a bit of everything to appreciate! The Dominion Hotel is located on the Main St. of Minden with tons of parking in the back and on the street. Visit their website here.
