PontiNonSoloMusica: jazz, prog e classic rock in Novellara

Novellara is a typical and well known smalltown in the county of Reggio Emilia.
Not so far from the Po river, its name is due to the constant fog persistance, during winter, with the suggestive landscape that reminds to a bluesy athmosphere, similar to the one you can find in the south Mississippi area.

Music always sounded throught the streets of Novellara, since the “Nubilaria Big Band” beginnings, till the more recent “Novellara Blues Festival”. Novellara is also well know as the city of the Nomadi’s band and their unforgotten singer Augusto Daolio.

A space reserved to the local rocker, Luciano Ligabue, is available.
Several good deals on collector’s and used stuff: we’ve found here the entire collection of Grateful Dead LPs! Moreover some 180gg reissues of classical albums like the debut of Comus (very rare!) or the famous Free’s “Fire and Water”.
