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 “ecyclopedic knowledge of tradtional songs. His original material “wondrous” and profound.”
Mark is a musician, teacher and songwriter. When not on the road, he teaches at Chicago’s venerable Old Town School of Folk Music, where he has been on faculty since 1986.
He has given concerts in almost all of the United States and has made visits to Finland, Canada and Ireland. He is busy at work on his eighteenth recorded release, and won awards for children’s music, journalism and was honored in 2008 with the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2013 he received the FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International.
His concerts ae 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-along songs, just like The Weavers used to do and mixes in his own infectious and well-crafted originals.
Mark has a refreshing, down-to-earth stage presence and is a very engaging performer. He sings with a clear, signature voice and he likes to joke around with the folks who attend his shows. Throughout the program he’ll interject personal anecdotes and add a touch of history or social context to the performance.
