Souillac Jazz Festival
Owner: Erica Meltzer |
A veritable summit of European jazz will be held in Souillac from 15-22 July 2017.
British, Danish, French, German, Portuguese and Swedish performers will share the stage. The highlights of the 42nd Souillac jazz festival will be concerts in memory of Léo Ferré fifty years after he left the Lot, and of the Alcazar concert hall in Marseilles, evenings where the accent will be on inter-generational relations, the voice of a singer who has done it all and a kind of red, one of the best jazz vintages.
Sumptuous jazz in sumptuous settings: a spectacle of light will illuminate the Abbey in Souillac and the caves at Lacave will resonate to the voice of the poet. Jazz will be heard at the Salmière mineral water springs in Miers and will accompany the flow of the Dordogne during lunch on its banks. The sound of jazz will ring out in the square at Pinsac in the shadow of the bell tower of the St Peter and St Paul Church.
