Uncommon double bill at Lakeview club September 15

CHICAGO IL - Uncommon Ground, 3800 N. Clark Street, will present Chicago’s “official troubadour” Mark Dvorak, and Florida’s acclaimed singer-songwriter and vocalist, Lauren Nicole Heintz at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, September 15. 

Heintz, an Air Force veteran who worked on U-2 spy planes, and then became a Silicon Valley software engineer before launching her music career, has won numerous awards for songwriting. The Uncommon Ground date on her current Midwest tour marks the return to her Chicago-area roots. 

“When I knew I was coming back to Chicago,” Heintz said, “I really wanted to include Uncommon Ground. It’s a legendary venue for songwriters. When they suggested a double bill, I started asking around, looking for a great artist to collaborate with. Everyone I asked suggested I get in touch with Mark,” she said.

“This is going to be great,” said Dvorak, the eclectic and sometimes fickle folk master who once listed the Old Town School of Folk Music as his address on his tax return.

“A friend called me last winter and said Lauren was coming to town in the fall, looking for a co-bill. I looked her up and sent a note. It was that easy,” he said. "Her voice is so down-to-earth, and unearthly at the same time. And I love her guitar playing,” he said.

“Back Home,” released in July, is Dvorak’s seventeenth album. It is a retrospect of current and archival music produced on his own label, Ten Fingers.

“It’s the kind of project I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said the singer. “There’s some live stuff, which I love, and some new songs. I wrote a book of essays and decided to read one of the stories, and that’s in there too. To be honest, it’s my favorite track.” 

General admission is $10. Reservations for dinner will guarantee a seat for the show. Contact Uncommon Ground at 773 929 3680 or visit online at
