Founded in 2019, HONKY TONK SAIL is a French association for culture, arts and music located on a sailboat travelling around the world. We are looking for sustainability while proposing an ecological way of touring. We collaborate with artists, civic and cultural organizations from the North Atlantic ocean and Western Europe. Jazz New Orleans is the main music on board, but the program also includes visual arts, performances, workshops and cultural exchanges.

Créée en 2019, HONKY TONK SAIL, est une association culturelle française spécialisée dans la musique jazz et les arts visuels. Nos activités se passent à bord d’un voilier qui voyage à travers le monde. Nous organisons nos tournées à la force du vent, source d’énergie durable et écologique. L’association travaille en collaborant avec des artistes et des structures culturelles et sociales de l’océan Atlantique et de l’Europe de l’Ouest. Au programme ? Des concerts de jazz New Orleans, des performances dessinées, des stages, des ateliers des échanges culturels et artistiques.
