New Orleans French Quarter Festival


Southern Sounds is the jazz tour division of Golf Escapes Limited, an ATOL
and ABTA bonded specialist tour operator. Southern Sounds have been
arranging jazz tours to the United States since 1992, when the first tour in association with the Ken Colyer Trust was organised.

Over the years we have built up a wealth of knowledge, and friends, in New Orleans, and now offer the only escorted jazz specific tour to the “home of
jazz” visiting in April each year for the French Quarter Festival, a free open
air festival with an eclectic mix of music, principally jazz but also gospel, blues, Cajun and zydeco. Our high profile amongst the jazz fraternity enables us to organise events that are unique including jam sessions with local musicians
and private parties at historic jazz venues.

The tour to New Orleans is suitable for lovers of all types of jazz, not just Traditional, and for all ages and includes events for "non-jazzers". As John
& Michael from Derby wrote in their testimonial after this year's tour
"everything was fantastic, thanks to your guidance we had excellent experiences we never expected and your ability to seek out special
events and places is astounding - we're putting the word around"

Our other area of speciality is Southern Africa, where we have in-depth
knowledge of Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and
Zambia and can arrange anything from a classic mobile-tented safari to a
family friendly itinerary in luxury lodges or an elephant back adventure.
