Folk duo Comfort Food perform at JustGoods April 12
Online Staff Report
Folk duo Comfort Food returns to JustGoods, 201 Seventh St., Rockford, for an evening of melody and song beginning at 7 p.m., Friday, April 12.
Three weeks after they met, Rich and Vicki Ingle performed together for the first time in Sandwich, Ill., at the Village Square open mic. That night, Comfort Food was born. They spent the following years practicing, writing songs and performing together. Their self-titled CD, Comfort Food, was released in 2010. They are working on a new CD.
Vicki has been active in the music scene in Illinois since the early 1980s. She sings, writes and plays guitar, fiddle or bass on music that spans a variety of musical styles, including bluegrass, folk, country, blues and, of course, original compositions.
Rich is a singer/songwriter deeply rooted in the local Chicago folk scene. With a no-nonsense Chicago-style attitude and an infectious enthusiasm for what he does, Rich serves up a hearty portion of down-to-earth music and storytelling, from the pulsing energy of his rhythm guitar, to his clever and often moving lyrics. The songs of Rich Ingle savor and satirize life in and around the Second City. A product of the 1970s coffeehouse scene, his songwriting suggests the influence of folk faves John Prine and Steve Goodman, but is truly his own. He’s the guy next door who been around the block a bit.
