Chicago folk troubadour Mark Dvorak returns to Ludington July 3 & 4

LUDINGTON, MI - Chicago’s “Official troubadour,” Mark Dvorak will return to Ludington for two shows on Friday, July 3 and Saturday July 4.

On Friday, Dvorak will perform at the Shagway Art Barn, 5949 Shagway Road, Ludington. The concert is from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. General admission is $7, $5 for senior citizens.

“This is our inaugural concert season,” said Nancy Miller, Shagway Art Barn co-owner. “We’re thrilled to be able to add Mark to our schedule for a special holiday weekend concert.”

“He’s the real deal,” said Bau Graves, Executive Director of Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, where Dvorak is artist-in-residence. ”Mark has made music his life and livelihood. He’s been a top faculty member at the school for more than twenty-five years. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful.”

On Saturday, July 4, Dvorak will perform a special family concert at the Ludington State Park amphitheater, 8800 West M-116. The one-hour concert begins at 7:00 pm.

Dvorak has released sixteen albums to date and performed in thirty-eight states, and in Canada, Ireland and Finland. In 2013 he published his first book of essays and poetry, “Bowling for Christmas and Other Tales from the Road.” Also in 2013 he was honored by Folk Alliance International with the FARM Lantern Bearer Award for his contributions to folk and community music.

“For me, folk music has always been a part of our shared history,” said Dvorak. "But it also gives us a language we can use to express ourselves; to let others know what we are thinking and what we are feeling.”

Dvorak plans to release three new projects in the coming months. “I’ve been working on an album of just banjo music, and I want to release a collection of older songs, standards like “Someone to Watch Over Me,” by George Gershwin, and a song Fats Waller recorded in the 1930s, “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie.” I also want to release some spoken word material.
