Folk and Americana come to Lombard September 28

LOMBARD IL - Maple Street Concerts welcomes back Chicago’s "official troubadour” Mark Dvorak and the father-daughter duo Last Acre, to its performance series on Saturday, Saturday, September 28 at 7:30 pm. The concert takes place at the Maple Street Chapel, 200 S. Main Street.


Dvorak has taken time off of the road this summer work on his eighteenth recorded release, “Let Love Go On.” 

“At this stage of the game,” said the singer, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. I’m very excited about the new CD. I’m in the home stretch now with just a few more songs to record. It’s taken me awhile to get the thing together but I’m very proud to have performed, engineered and produced the whole album. I’ve got some new material coming along and will include some of my all-time in-concert favorites too.”

“Mark is like a modern-day troubadour,” said Karen Jensen, music director for Maple Street Concerts. “He was among our very first to performers at the Maple Street Chapel and he is a favorite and a Midwest treasure."

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has won awards for journalism and children’s music and was honored in 2008 with the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and the FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance in 2013. In 2012, WFMT 98.7 fm Midnight Special host Rich Warren named him “Chicago’s official troubadour.”

Last Acre is Mark and Molly Mathewson, a father and daughter duo. Mark plays guitar, mandolin and is an award-winning songwriter. Molly adds vocals and plays stand up bass.

“They’re sound is rooted in traditional Appalachia folk music with one foot in bluegrass and the other in Midwest songwriting,” said Jensen. It ought to be a one-of-a-kind special evening.”
