April 19

Steveston Folk Guild at the Britannia Heritage Shipyard

Ranj Singh & The Discriminators begins at 7: 30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. Tickets are $8 at the door.

Once again SFG is proud to announce the return of Ranj Singh & The Discriminators. With his new CD titled, "Found A Way Home," Singh has once again demonstrated his song writing talents, and with his incredible band of musicians has once again created a must-have album. Singh started his career in the mid '80s along with many folkPunjabi and Hindi artists in the Vancouver area.

In the '90s, he helped form - along with his talented brothers - the group Dal Dil Vog (a.k.a.DDV). This group went on to win numerous awards and performed with artists, such as, Jan Arden and Mathew Good. DDV's style of bhangara/rock music led to tours throughout North America and India.

In recent years Singh has worked hard to combine his vast experience in Indian music with his up stroke guitar melodies. This, with the diverse talents of The Discriminators, has created a distinct Indo-Canadian style. Members are Chris Dufault on lead guitar, Dan Huget on electric violin, Bojan Bugarinovich on sitar and bass, and David Eadie on percussion.

Location: The Chinese Bunkhouse in the Britannia Heritage Shipyard site, 5180 Westwater Dr.
