Concerts On the Creek

Troubadour Mark Dvorak returns to Rockford for April 10 concert

ROCKFORD IL -  Concerts on the Creek presents, “An Intimate Evening with Mark Dvorak” on Saturday, April 9, at the Spring Creek United Church of Christ, 4500 Spring Creek Road. The concert begins at 7:00 pm.

“Mark has become a real favorite in Rockford,” said Ron Holm, artistic director for Concerts on the Creek. “We’re thrilled to have live music back at Spring Creek, and delighted Mark is able to join us for our spring season.”

When singer songwriter Mark Dvorak began his career in music he knew right away he’d be in it for the long haul. Thirty years later Mark is still writing, recording and on the road performing.

“At this stage of the game,” said the singer from his home outside Chicago, Illinois, “I feel like I’m doing my best work.” 

Dvorak is busy at work on his 20th CD release and fourth book of essays, 31 Winters. 

The Chicago Tribune has called him “masterful,” and the Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “a living archive of song and style.” Dvorak has won awards for journalism and children’s music, and was honored in 2013 with the FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and in 2012 Rich Warren, long time host of The Midnight Special radio program named Dvorak “Chicago’s official troubadour.”
