We’re putting on our dancing shoes and getting ready for a party! Blueberry Grass Band is on its way back to the Canada pavilion at Walt Disney World‘s Epcot for the end of summer. Starting July 31st and lasting until October 6th of this year, we will be serenaded once again by the Quebec natives who’ve previously brought a joyous blend of music and antics to the Disney stage.
The band is known for playing French and English Canadian hits with a Bluegrass twist. They’ll be on stage Tuesday through Saturday at 2:15, 3:30, 5:00, 6:15, and 7:00 PM. Six talented musicians come together to form this group, with singing by Marie-Noëlle Claveau, guitar by Pascal Beaulieu (who also does vocals), violin by Sébastien Savard (also a vocalist and the founder of the band), percussion by David Simard, banjo by Benoît Girard (who also does vocals), and double bass by Charles Gagnon-Gilbert. Their inspirations vary from hip hop to Blues and seemingly everything in between, while their experience boasts such accolades as “Britain’s Got Talent” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
With a unique name like “Blueberry Grass Band,” there is always a story. Theirs starts with the nickname given to locals of their home region of Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean: blueberries. As a tribute to their roots, they’ve carried the name across Northern America and beyond, soon to revisit us at Walt Disney World.
Hurry up and brush up those moves because you haven’t got much time left before the celebration begins. We know we’ll be making extra stops in Canada soon for one of the most festive gatherings in all of Epcot!
