Blueberry Grass Band from Canada Arrives at Epcot June 13
From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Shawn Slater
One of the greatest joys in exploring World Showcase at Epcot is discovering authentic entertainment experiences from around the world. Starting June 13, the Mill Stage at the Canada Pavilion comes alive with the music of Blueberry Grass Band, an accomplished group from Quebec who transform French and English Canadian hits into their own festive sound.
Blueberry Grass Band takes its name from the sweet nickname given to the people of their home region, Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean. In that beautiful part of Quebec, the residents are colloquially known as “blueberries.” The playful spirit of this nickname shows in the band’s performance as well. Every concert is an undeniably joyous occasion, with their upbeat tunes and the clearly cheerful rapport between the performers. Every member of this six-person band has a different musical background, resulting in a group that uses a variety of instruments – string bass, guitar, violin, drums, banjo and of course, voice!
Blueberry Grass Band has brought their shows to audiences in twenty countries and performed on “Britain’s Got Talent” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Now for a limited time from June 13 to August 26, you can catch them live at Epcot on the Canada Mill Stage.
