New Gig Alert: Rising Sun in Ickford

Hi, folks! Okay, okay, it’s a little bit last minute, but we wanted to let you know that we’ve been asked to step in to play a set at the Rising Sun in Ickford this Saturday.

Organised by Dean Butler, it features a cracking line-up of musicians, many of whom we know from the Open Micsolate Facebook group. Acts include Wendy Grace, Simon Gregory, Andrew Hogger and Kimberley Williams.

Unfortunately, our good friend Nick Atkinson had to pull out, and so we agreed to play a duo set in his slot at three PM ish. We hope to see lots of you there!

You can find out more about the event in the poster above or on the Facebook page, and you can also follow the Ilk on Facebook and Instagram while you’re at it. Our new album, 12 Step Programme, is also out on Spotify.

We’re Returning to The Phoenix on October 13th!

Hi, folks! Just a quick update today to let you know that we’ve got a gig coming up.

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been invited back to The Phoenix Bar in High Wycombe to perform an acoustic set as part of their series of acoustic sessions.

We’ve played there a few times in the past, including a notable gig in December 2020 that was the last chance we got to play together for six months or so, and we were also there back in July for one of the last shows that our friend Sam Pritchard organised before sadly passing away.

And so we’re excited to be heading back on the evening of October 13th, and we hope that you’ll come and join us. We’ve got plenty of great tunes planned including a few fan favourites, a bunch of originals and some covers that we haven’t performed for a while, so be sure to stop by and say hello.

You can find out more about the gig on the Facebook event page, and be sure to follow The Ilk and the Phoenix while you’re at it. You can also follow the Ilk on Instagram. We’ll see you at a show sometime soon!
