An evening of song at The Skokie Theatre May 31

SKOKIE IL - The Skokie Theatre, 7924 Lincoln Avenue welcomes folk/Americana artist Mark Dvorak for a special evening of song on Friday, May 31 at 8:00 pm. Cabaret vocalist Carla Gordon will open the show.

When Chicago-based singer songwriter began his career in music, he knew right away he was in it for the long haul. Thirty-four years later he’s still on the road performing and busy at work on his eighteenth recorded release.

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. I’ve got some new material coming along and am very excited about the new recording. I’m absolutely thrilled to be back at the Skokie. It’s a beautiful, intimate space, perfect for our kind of music.”

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.”

“He’s the real deal,” said James Tomasello of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, where Dvorak has been on faculty since 1986. “Mark has made music his life and his livelihood,” he said. “His performances are elegant, rich and powerful. He is one of the Old Town School’s Distinguished Teaching Artists.”

Carla Gordon is a singer songwriter, producer, director and a fixture on the Chicago cabaret scene. The Chicago Tribune called her “a major player in cabaret… among Chicago’s most accomplished performers.” Gordon’s songs have been performed in Chicagoland and across the country by more than fifty vocalists.
