Nyla Petruccione founded Recovery Rock Fest not just for people in addiction recovery; it's also for anyone who loves rock and folk music, but who would like to experience it without the alcohol/drug culture. Nyla put on a similar festival in Florida, but this is the first one she is directing in Wilmington. Performers are Melissa Ferrick, Stray Local, Mike Blair & the Stonewalls, and Folkstar. Kim Dicso of Folkstar and Nyla visited our studio to talk about the festival.
Tickets are available online and will be sold at the door. A portion of the proceeds for this event go to the Collegiate Recovery Community at UNCW. There is a fundraiser to support the project here.
