Once I Had an Old Banjo

MUNDELEIN IL - The Fremont Public Library welcomes Chicago’s “official troubadour” Mark Dvorak to its performance series on Wednesday, January 13 at 7:00 pm. The library is located at 1170 N. Midlothian Road, Mundelein.


Dvorak will present “Once I Had an Old Banjo,” a program that explores the origin and evolution of the uniquely American instrument, the five-string banjo.

“The banjo has been one of my favorite instruments even though I don’t play one at all,” said Jan Oblinger Adult Program Coordinator at Fremont Library. “Mark is always a hit with our patrons, and we’re so excited he’ll be joining us to kick off the new year.”

Dvorak released his seventeenth album last July, “Back Home,” on his own Ten Fingers label, and is planning more recording projects in the new year. “I’ve been rehearsing up the material for an all banjo record,” said the singer. “I’ve had a lot of requests for it over the years, and now it feels like the right time,” he said.

Admission to the program is free. Contact the library for more information at 847 566 8702, or visit their web site at www.fremontlibrary.org. To learn more about Mark Dvorak, visit his homepage at www.markdvorak.com.
