Chicago folk troubadour performs in Maplewood September 29

MAPLEWOOD MO - The Focal Point, 2720 Sutton Blvd., welcomes Chicago’s "official troubadour" Mark Dvorak for an intimate acoustic performance on Saturday, September 29 at 8:00 pm. 


When the singer-songwriter began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. Thirty-four years later he is still on the road and recording.

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. I’m hoping to get the new CD out this year and am very excited about it. I’ve got some new material coming along, and I’m including a bunch of different things I like to do before a live audience.

“Mark has been on the road for a lot of years it seems,” said Dan Higgins, music director at The Focal Point. "He’s a masterful musician and an essential figure on the Midwest folk music scene. We're thrilled to have him.”

“He’s the real deal,” said Bau Graves, Executive Director of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, where Dvorak has been on faculty for thirty years. ”Mark has made music his life and livelihood. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful. He is one of the Old Town School’s Distinguished Teaching Artists.”

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has released seventeen albums and has won awards for journalism and children’s music. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International in 2013.

The Focal Point was established in 1975 and has become the premiere folk music listening room in the greater St. Louis area.
