The fourth and final new World Showcase act quietly debuted this weekend in the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot. The Celtic folk band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, is called The Paul McKenna Band. Their music is very light and traditional, featuring a guitar, flute, drum, and violin.

The band can be found playing in the United Kingdom courtyard with show times at 11:00 a.m., 11:50 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 1:40 p.m., 2:35 p.m., 3:35 p.m. and 4:50 p.m.

Fans of The British Revolution need not fret, because that band will continue playing in the United Kingdom pavilion, as well.

The other entertainment acts that have debuted this fall are: the Canadian Lumberjack Show, which debuted in early October; the Italian flag-throwing troupe called Sbandieratori Di Sansepolcro, which debuted in the middle of October; and B’net Al Houwariyate, which began performing in the beginning of November.

The Paul McKenna Band seems as though it is a great new addition to the park and fits in with the pavilion quite well.

    Happy to hear that they didn’t get rid of British Revolution. For me and my wife, one of the highlights of Epcot has been grabbing a beer or three, listening to British Revolution and Off Kilter, while our daughters danced their hearts out. Guess we’ll just be hanging out in the UK a little longer than usual now.

    Good thing Scotland didn’t vote to leave the Union or Disney would have to rethink their entertainment 😉

    They sound pretty good, but I wish they would play more traditional songs. I still wish they would bring back Off Kilter.
