Celtic band Bodh’aktan to appear at Epcot's Canada Pavilion

Sep 20, 2016 in "Bodh'aktan"

Epcot's Canada Pavilion will be home to another guest musical group later this year - Bodh’aktan.

Bodh’aktan’s music combines elements of celtic, trad-Quebecois, polka, punk, Irish folk, Breton and Maritime. The group will be appearing for a limited time - 20 days in October 2016, followed by another 20 days in January 2017.

Current band Alberta Bound will have their last performance for this engagement on October 2, with Bodh’aktan set to debut a week later.

This latest group continues Epcot's new direction of regularly rotating live entertainment, and bringing in outside acts instead of creating in-house bands.

I would like that as well, although I still love Alberta Bound there. Getting to see both in one trip would be awesome!!! Marie

You are very welcome. I hope you get to see them sometime. I would welcome 2 or 3 one month engagements each year on The Mill Stage. :-)

I'm pretty sure I met a Jem'Hadar by the name of Bodh'aktan once.

Great job!!!! Both the video and the band!!! They look like a great time and I like the sound. It sort of reminds me of another Irish band, Gaelic Storm. Thank you so much for sharing!!! Marie

Here are short video clips that I took from 2 shows on Oct 15th at Epcot. I know one song is there twice, but that 2nd clip of 'Heave Away' shows the crowd having a blast. :)

I had heard they were awesome from several of the girls who are Alberta Bound/ Holiday Voyageurs/ Off Kilter Fans who are local to the area. I wont catch them this time, but I do hope to see them in the future!! Marie

I saw them twice in October and LOVED them. Being from Atlantic Canada, that's a type of music with with I'm very familiar, but even for the uninitiated, their energy and enthusiasm is awesome!

Just saw a AC DC Highway to Hell cover, I may have to figure a way to catch a show while they are there.

Cool. I'll be there for both 20 day windows. I will probably video some of it, but I would bet W Dee W EN Tee gets there before me.
