Adam Miller is a renowned American folk singer and natural-born storyteller who is based in Eugene, Oregon. Miller performs over 200 concerts each year and has released six CDs of traditional American folk music.

When Chicago-based singer songwriter Mark Dvorak began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. Thirty-four years later he’s still on the road, performing and recording.

“He’s the real deal,” said James Tomasello of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, where Dvorak has been on faculty for thirty years.

“Mark has made music his life’s work and livelihood,” he said. "His performances are elegant, rich and powerful. He is one of the Old Town School’s distinguished teaching artists.”

Dvorak is currently working on his eighteenth recorded release, “Let Love Go On,” due out later this year. 

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. I’m very excited about the new CD. I’ve got some new material coming along, and I’m including a bunch of different things I like to do before a live audience."

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has won awards for journalism and children’s music. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International in 2013. In 2012, WFMT 98.7 fm Midnight Special host Rich Warren named him Chicago’s “official troubadour.”

General admission is $10.  Atlanta Area Friends of Folk members $8. For more information visit the Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music at www.aaffm.org. For information on Adam Miller visit www.folksinging.org, and find Mark Dvorak on the web at www.markdvorak.com.
