Warren Township Public Library features folk singer songwriter Mark Dvorak June 30

WARREN IL - Chicago’s “official troubadour” Mark Dvorak will give a free concert at the Warren Township Public Library, 210 Burnett Avenue on Friday, June 30 at 6:30 pm.


Dvorak who accompanies himself on guitar, 5-string banjo and 12-string guitar, has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has won awards for journalism, children’s music and in 2013 he received the Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.

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.” 

In 2012 Rich Warren, long time host of Chicago's The Midnight Special radio program named Dvorak “Chicago’s official troubadour.”
