What is there to do in Vannes? Sip a Cuba Libre cocktail? Why not, especially when you can take in a concert at the same time, like the Buena Vista Social Club, who played here just a couple of years ago…

What is there to do in Vannes? Sip a Cuba Libre cocktail while you smoke a Havana cigar? Why not, especially if you’re lucky enough to be listening to a concert by the Buena Vista Social Club, like they were a couple of years ago. Because, if you don’t already know, Morbihan has been bitten by jazz fever. Stéphane Grappelli, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall and even the colossal Taj Mahal all bear witness to that. When the flood gates open in mid-summer, the blues musicians, New Orleans brass bands and giants of the jazz world take the ramparts of the old town by storm. In the streets in the afternoon, and in public parks and squares in the evening, always in the open air. From the Gardens of the Hotel de Limur to the Carmes Auditorium, via the esplanade in the port, the public get their money's worth and jazz gets its audience.
