Music Day at Refuge Ranch
The Gospel Troubadours and invited guest musicians have 'Music Day' on the second Saturday of every month with a program at 2:30 pm. The guest musicians come from all over Western Canada and enjoy the honest relaxed atmosphere that is a hallmark of the Ranch. The variety of music covers mostly country, bluegrass and southern gospel genre, but not exclusively. For example, a Holdeman choir blessed the audience with a complete accappela program. One thing you can count on from every program is that it will be specifically set to honour our Lord Jesus Christ.
At present the 'Ranch Band' members are Rick Plett (autoharp and vocals), Carol Plett (vocals), Dwayne (Snoof) Neufeld (steel guitar), Neil Barton (vocals, banjo and lead guitar), April Barton (vocals and rhythm guitar), Ron Friesen (bass guitar) and Lydia Friesen (sound tech). Rick and Carol have recorded numerous recordings through the years with a number of different musicians. If you are interested in their music please contact them at (403) 546-4390.
The most recent music project from the Ranch is a CD called The Lighthouse. It features vocals by Rick, Carol, Dan Bueckert and Ben Crane.
