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!
