Mark Dvorak is a modern day troubadour who has never stopped performing, writing and recording. Since 1981, Mark has performed all over the the country and abroad on festival stages and theaters, as well in smaller venues. His concerts are a mix of the familiar and the new, traditional folk and standards from the 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 he mixes in his own well-crafted and often poignant originals.
Dvorak continues to be an integral member of the faculty at Chicago's venerable Old Town School of Folk Music. When he's not on the road, you can find him there teaching, jamming with students and passers by, or just hanging out and soaking in the vibe.
