Recovery Rock Fest: Folk & Rock / Clean & Sober

Nyla Petruccione & Kim Dicso

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.

Recovery Rock Fest. Saturday, August 29 @ Kenan Auditorium. Doors open at 6 pm; Showtime 7 pm

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.
