For almost 10 years the Neat Coffee Shop, a little cafe in rural eastern Ontario has become known for serving some of the best food and coffee as well as some of the best live music from some of the biggest artists around.  2015 marks the year that Adam McKinty takes his vision to the next level.

North On 29

North On 29

First came North on 29, if you’ve ever driving from Carleton Place to Arnprior along County Road 29 you’ve likely seen a big barn once converted into a restaurant but standing vacant on the side of the highway waiting for someone to adopt it and bring it back to life once again.  North on 29 did just that.  Kicking off earlier this year with performances by The Good Brothers, Hawksley Workman and The Sadies the venue is, again, alive and well and has since played host to Monkey Junk and already has performances booked for Ashley MacIsaac (April 3), Alex Cuba (April 14), The Leahy’s In Song (April 17) and  Red Wanting Blue (May 13).   Information and tickets for all shows can be found at the venue’s website:

Coming this fall to the woods near Burnstown, Ontario is the first annual Neat in the Woods festival.  The event, which will be held on a parcel of land near the Neat Coffee Shop September 25-27, 2015, will be hosted by The Arrogant Worms and already features Monkey Junk, the Bright Light Social Hour, The Sadies, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Current Swell and Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers with headliners expected to be announced shortly.

We are thrilled to support this amazing inaugural event and will bring you all of the details leading up to and throughout the festival weekend.

If you are looking for tickets, good news they are available now and considering the venue capacity is just under 13,000 you may want to buy now as this event is certain to sell out once the full lineup is announced.  Tickets range in price from $600 for 3-day VIP to $65 for a single day pass with the regular 3 day weekend pass coming in at $165.  Shuttles will be available to and from Ottawa, Calabogie, Arnprior and Renfrew.  For detailed ticket information be sure to visit:
