Minocqua WI

An acoustic evening with Mark Dvorak Zooms to Minocqua February 20

MINOCQUA WI - Bats in the Boathouse Press will present a special live stream acoustic evening with Midwest troubadour Mark Dvorak on Saturday, February 20 at 6:00 pm CST.

"Mark is a favorite in Minocqua," said Jerry Woolpy, a retired professor at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.  “He’s a Midwest treasure. He’s a singer with a great warm voice, a songwriter, a musician and a teacher. He does it all brilliantly and we’re excited to present this virtual concert."

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I am doing my best work.” 

During the pandemic Dvorak has been busy with recording and writing. His latest CD Alive & Alone is due out in March and was recorded live in an empty concert space for 98.7 fm WFMT’s “Folk Stage” series with Rich Warren.

Dvorak has also completed work on a new collection of essays, “31 Winters,” which reflects on his journey through teaching and music.

He will be joined by Marianne Mohrhusen for the live stream event. 

“Marianne is a wonderful singer with great taste and clarity,” said Dvorak.”We’re only able to get together a few times a year to harmonize, so this will be a very special evening.”

The Chicago Tribune has called Dvorak “masterful,” and the Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “an 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 The Midnight Special  radio program named him “Chicago’s official troubadour.”

There is no admission charge to the virtual concert, but a donation to the artists is suggested.
