Mark Dvorak w/ Beverly Meyer
Mark Dvorak is the third son of four, born to a working class family on Chicago's southwest side. After reading Anthony Scaduto's biography of Bob Dylan in high school, his interest in American folk music was born. Soon the recordings of Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly and Pete Seeger found their way into his collection. He purchased his first acoustic guitar while working in a xylophone factory in LaGrange, Illinois, and enrolled in classes at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music after a summer of traveling the country by motorcycle.

In 1981 he performed at the Fox Valley Folk Festival in Geneva, Illinois for the first time, and later that year opened a performance venue, "The Old Quarter Coffee House, named after the legendary Houston club where Townes Van Zandt recorded a live album in the early seventies. Three years later, new owners took control of "The Old Quarter," and it grew into a full-time club, booking national acts and hosting classes and workshops. After a successful run of six years, "The Old Quarter" was reorganized again, this time as the non-profit Plank Road Folk Music Society, which celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2016. Dvorak spent six years on the board, wrote and edited the newsletter, served two terms as Plank Road president, and still remains close to the organization.

In 1995, Dvorak released his first CD specifically for young listeners on the Depot label. "Old Songs & New People" was a notable success, winning the Parents' Choice Gold Medal Award and leading to hundreds of nationwide performances for arts-in-education and community audiences.

In 2012 WFMT's Rich Warren, host of "The Midnight Special," named Dvorak "Chicago's official troubadour," a sobriquet previously given to Old Town School of Folk Music founder Win Stracke, and later to seminal folk singer and Dvorak mentor Fred Holstein.

The Midwest region of Folk Alliance International (FARM) named Dvorak the 2013 Lantern Bearer Award recipient, an award presented to an individual who has contributed to folk performance arts and the folk music and dance community for twenty-five years or more.

In December of 2013, Dvorak published his first collection of essays and poems, "Bowling for Christmas and Other Tales from the Road." The book sold out of its initial printing in nine days and received glowing reviews.

Dvorak continues to perform more than two hundred dates each year and looks back on a thirty year career woven from the disparate threads of touring musician, educator and community builder.

Detroit area singer songwriter, Beverly Meyer, will open the show.
