Long-time Epcot performers Off Kilter are long gone from Walt Disney World but far from forgotten by fans, who can catch the Celtic rock crowd-pleasers at Winter Garden MusicFest on October 7.
The Winter Garden Heritage Foundation has announced that the high energy Celtic Rock band Off Kilter will return for the eleventh annual Winter Garden MusicFest on Friday, October 7 at 10 p.m. Off Kilter’s MusicFest performance last year drew thousands of concert-goers, and the band released their sixth album One More Time in June of 2016.
This year’s festival will also include a solo performance by David Oliver Willis. A Mt. Dora native, Willis is a three-time American Idol contestant, appearing in Seasons 12, 13, and 14. Willis’ MusicFest debut is scheduled for Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m.
MusicFest is a free three-day musical event showcasing a diverse collection of Florida’s finest musicians and over 20 various musical genres. The full schedule of musical talent is available online.
