Comfort Food, the folk duo of Rich and Vicki Ingle, will play at Books on First in Dixon on March 9.

DIXON – The folk duo Comfort Food will perform from 7 to 9 p.m. March 9 at Books on First, 202 W. First St.

Rich and Vicki Ingle have produced a CD titled “Comfort Food,” released in 2010, and are working on a new one.

Vicki, active in the music scene in Illinois since the early 1980s, sings, writes, and plays guitar, fiddle or bass. Her music runs the gamut, from bluegrass, folk, country, and blues.

Rich is a singer/songwriter/storyteller deeply rooted in the Chicago folk scene. He has a no-nonsense Chicago-style attitude and an infectious enthusiasm for what he does. A product of the ’70s coffeehouse scene, his songwriting suggests the influence of folk faves John Prine and Steve Goodman, but is truly his own.
