Our musical guest for the evening, Ranjit “Ranj” Singh makes music with a distinct Indian-Western flair that draws on the singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist’s love for rock music and heartfelt lyrics. He refers to his unique blend of music as “Indo-Canadian Folk”.
Ranj will get the party started at 5.30PM at the Gassy Statue along with a number of weird and wonderful performers courtesy of the always eccentric Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. What happens when an owl hangs out with a headless man while dancing to Indo- Canadian folk? Come to #GTN July 25th to find out.
