Off Square On Air

Midwest troubadour Dvorak to perform in Woodstock November 2

WOODSTOCK IL - Off Square Music welcomes back Midwest troubadour Mark Dvorak for a special evening of song and conversation Wednesday, November 2, 7:00 pm central time. The event takes place live and live stream from Stage Left Cafe, 125 Van Buren Street. 


“'Off Square On Air’ is our latest project," said Keith Johnson of Woodstock who will host the evening. “We’re really excited that Mark is able to join us. I’m looking forward to interviewing him, listening to his great songs and sharing questions from the audience.”

Johnson is the founder and former director of Off Square Music. Earlier in the year he received several awards including a “Woody Award” for his life long commitment to building community through music. 

Dvorak is busy at work on his 20th CD release Live & Alone, recorded in an empty concert hall during the height of the pandemic lock down. He is also planning to publish his fourth book of essays, 31 Winters,  which reflects on his long journey through music and teaching.

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

The Chicago Tribune has called Dvorak “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.”
