It’s all swinging in the Yonne!

20/07/2018 - 21/07/2018

Over a two day period, the Toucy Jazz Festival enlivens the municipality of Toucy. This July weekend pulsates with the vibe of concerts and musical exhibitions that take place in all the convivial locations of the town.

A high quality musical programming

The Toucy Jazz Festival was first held in 2008 at the behest of Ricky Ford. The American saxophone player fell in love with the area. Having accompanied the greatest players (among them Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus), he decided to bring his jazz-artist friends along to the little municipality of La Puisaye.

And so, some musicians with an international dimension come together for the love of music in order to enjoy the great concerts that are on the programme. Swing, song and gypsy jazz music mean that visitors are immersed in the ambiance of the streets of New York or New Orleans.

A wander round Toucy

In addition to the night-time concerts, the Toucy Jazz Festival brings music to life in all the streets of the town. Restaurants, bars and walkways welcome jam and improvisation sessions that are completely free; Sociable times to share around a great dinner table.

Jazz-themed exhibitions of photos and paintings (other passions of the organiser Ricky Ford) are also shown during the festival, and remain there throughout the summer.
