Chicago’s official troubadour returns to Rockford for Listening Room concert March 2

ROCKFORD IL - When folk singer-songwriter Mark Dvorak began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. “For me, folk music has always been a part of our  shared history,” said Dvorak, who is based in Chicago. “But it also gives us a language we can use to express ourselves; to let others know what we are thinking and what we are feeling.”

Dvorak is busy at work on his eighteenth CD release, “Let Love Go On.” 

“I’ve been working on a whole bunch of new songs,” said the singer. “I’ve been on the road for almost two years solid. People are looking for each other. People are looking for things they can count on,” he said. “And they usually first turn to music."

The Rockford Listening Room welcomes back Dvorak to Just Goods Fair Trade Marketplace, 201 7th Street, on Friday, March 2. The concert begins at 7:00 pm.

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He 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. In 2012, WFMT 98.7 fm Fine Arts Radio named Dvorak Chicago’s “official troubadour.” In 2016 he celebrated his 30th anniversary on faculty at Chicago’s venerable Old Town School of Folk Music, where he is artist-in-residence.

“He’s the real deal,” said Bau Graves, Executive Director of Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music. ”Mark has made music his life and livelihood. He’s been a top faculty member at the school for almost thirty years. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful.”
