DIXON – The folk duo Comfort Food returns to town for an evening of melody and song from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 16 at Books on First, 202 W. First Ave.

Two musical sets are planned. The first set will include songs of Illinois singer/songwriter John Prine, in celebration of his October birthday. The second set will include Comfort Food favorites with new story songs. 

Three weeks after they met, Rich and Vicki Ingle performed together for the first time in Sandwich at the Village Square open mic. That night, Comfort Food was born. They spent the following years practicing, writing songs and performing together.

The group’s self-titled album “Comfort Food” was released in 2010.  They are working on a new release. 

Vicki has been active in the music scene in Illinois since the early 1980s. Vicki sings, writes, and plays guitar, fiddle or bass on music that spans a variety of styles, including bluegrass, folk, country, blues, and, of course, original compositions.

Rich is a singer/songwriter deeply rooted in the local Chicago folk scene. He serves up a hearty portion of down-to-earth music and storytelling.

A product of the ’70s coffeehouse scene, Rich’s songwriting suggests the influence of folk faves John Prine and Steve Goodman, but is truly his own.
