ABOUT MARK DVORAK

Mark Dvorak is a modern day troubadour who has never stopped performing, writing and recording. He has been called a “folk singer’s folk singer” with “an encyclopedic knowledge of traditional songs.” His original songs are described as “wondrous” and “profound.”

Though Mark often appears in theaters and on festival stages, he is also at home in a more intimate setting.

His concerts are a mix of the familiar and the new, traditional folk and standards from the Great American Songbook. He plays authentic country blues guitar and picks great old-time banjo. Mark enjoys involving his audiences in sing-alongs, just like The Weavers used to do, and mixes in his own well-crafted originals.

Mark has a refreshing, down-to-earth stage presence, and is a very engaging performer. He sings in a clear, signature voice, and he likes to joke around too, with the folks who attend his shows. Throughout the program he’ll interject anecdotes and add a touch of history or social context to the performance.

The Chicago Tribune has called Mark Dvorak “masterful,” and the  Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “a living archive of song and style.” In 2012 WFMT 98.7 fm Fine Arts Radio named him “Chicago’s official troubadour.”

Dvorak has won awards for children’s music, journalism, and in 2013 was honored with the FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 2013 he released his second collection of essays and poetry, Bowling for Christmas & Other Tales from the Road. He is currently working his 18th CD release, Let Love Go On, due out in 2018, and a new collection of writings, 31 Winters, also due out this year.
