The Mill Stage at the Canadian Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase is about to get a new band starting June 13th. Blueberry Grass is an accomplished group from Quebec who transforms French and English Canadian hits into their own festive sound.
The new performers have a unique history as described on the Disney Parks Blog:
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!
Be sure to check out the new performers as they are only at Epcot for a limited time, ending their “tour” on August 26th.
