Mark Dvorak

Mark Dvorak  (Folk/Singer-Songwriter, Originals and traditional)

  
Musician, teacher, songwriter and author Mark Dvorak has served as a resource for arts and community organizations and venues across the country 

The Chicago Tribune has called him, “masterful,” and the Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “a living archive of song and style.” In 2012, WFMT 98.7 fm Fine Arts Radio named him “Chicago’s official troubadour.”

“He’s the real deal,” said Bau Graves, Executive Director of Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, where Dvorak is artist-in-residence. ”Mark has made music his life and livelihood. He’s been a top faculty member at the school for more than twenty-five years. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful.” 

He has given concerts in almost all of the United States and has made visits to Finland, Canada and Ireland. To date, he has released sixteen albums of traditional and original music, including Waterbug’s acclaimed “Time Ain’t Got Nothin’ On Me.” 
Dvorak has 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. In 2013 he published his second collection of essays and poetry, “Bowling for Christmas and Other Tales from the Road.” 

When singer-songwriter Mark Dvorak began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. Thirty-four years later, "Back Home," his latest CD release, marks an important milestone. “For me, folk music has always been a part of our shared history,” said Dvorak. "But it also gives us a language we can use to express ourselves; to let others know what we are thinking and what we are feeling.”
