The best of summer in France?  Without doubt, the concerts.  Jazz in a stunning courtyard by the river. Recently, a trio of musicians came to Gaillac hot from Marciac – a jazz festival in rural France (think fields of sunflowers)  begun in 1978 which attracts big names – Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis, Dizzie Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Ray Charles, Keith Jarrett have all played there.
