Jazz festival in French Brittany : Jazz aux écluses 19-21 sept. 2014

In Festivals, jazz on September 9, 2014 at 1:32 pm

Dear friends,

70 years ago, our liberators crossed the French territory. This moment of history is the opportunity to honor jazz as the music of freedom during the 7th edition of Jazz aux écluses in Hédé-Bazouges.

More than a cliché, this festival proposes to listen to the roots of Haitian Jazz, to remember Martin Luther King… Jazz aux écluses is not only for adults, there are some animations for the children, one of them concerns the art of cup songs.

Located between Rennes and Dinan, it would be better for you to take few days more to discover this beautiful region. Jazz, culture, history, popular traditions, what else?

I’m sure that you will enjoy your stay!

Dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to announce the fifth edition of the jazz festival of Saint-Cast-Le-Guildo (French Brittany) from July 29 until August 5, 2013.

This beautiful, wild and authentic region offers you a jazz air along the sea and the magnificent Emerald Coast. Sea, sun, wind, panoramic views during the day and jazz at night of course!

Dear friends,

A jazz festival in the celtic part of France (Ille-et-Vilaine) will take place from 8 until 16 November 2012. For those who like the “broken-Bollie Holiday’s style”  voice of Madeleine Peyroux or the Pygmee Rapp of Paco Sery, Rennes will be the place to be !

Jazz à l’Ouest festival exists for more than 20 years. Great program and great place to stay !

Enjoy,

Céline

03/11/2012: Festival Plouër’ in Jazz (France, Brittany)

In Festivals on October 31, 2012 at 9:25 am

Dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to announce you that the 4th edition of Plouër’in Jazz will take place on November 3th 2012 (4 pm until 1 am).

It’s a one day festival in Brittany (Côtes d’Armor), in one of the most beautiful wild landscapes that you can find in France. This region is known for celtic music but, sometimes, jazz has the preference !

Do not hesitate to stay for a week because few days later another Jazz festival will take place in Rennes (see post : 8-16 November 2012 : Festival Jazz à l’Ouest).

I’m sure you will enjoy the warmth of the celtic atmosphere mixed with excellent jazz music !

Céline
