Chicago folk troubadour performs in Chelsea March 22

CHELSEA MI - Zou Zou’s Cafe, 101 Main Street welcomes Chicago’s "official troubadour" Mark Dvorak for an intimate acoustic performance on Friday, March 22 at 8:00 pm. 


When the singer-songwriter began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. Thirty-four years later he is still on the road and recording.

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. I’m hoping to get the new CD out this year and am very excited about it. 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.

“Mark has been on the road for a lot of years it seems,” said Judy Banker, music director at Zou Zou’s. "He’s a masterful musician and an essential figure on the Midwest music scene. We're thrilled to have him.”

“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 and livelihood. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful. He is one of the Old Town School’s Distinguished Teaching Artists.”

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has released seventeen albums and 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.

Zou Zou’s Cafe has been part of the Chelsea community for over twenty years, presenting music and serving sandwiches, salads, breakfast, desserts coffee drinks and more. 

There is no cover charge for the music but listener donations are encouraged.
