Steel Beam Theatre presents “Songs From the Attic” with folk artist Mark Dvorak August 25

ST. CHARLES IL - The Steel Beam Theatre, 111 W. Main Street, welcomes Chicago’s “official troubadour” Mark Dvorak for a special benefit performance, “Songs From the Attic” Saturday, August 25 at 7:30 pm.


Songs From the Attic is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Dvorak. It is an intimate evening with Mark, his guitar, his banjo and his songs and his stories. Ticket sales will benefit the Steel Beam Theatre, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

The performance is drawn from Dvorak's musical reflection of over thirty years on the road and in the classroom performing, teaching and writing songs. 

“I’ve been able to make a living,” said the singer who is at work on his eighteenth CD release. “Right away I learned that the music I was drawn to and the music I loved, always came from people and their experiences. Those experiences gave me direction and nourished me over the years. I was lucky enough to have some very amazing artists’ work flow into my life as a young man. While learning to wrap my head and my heart around this music, I was also lucky enough to have bumped into some very generous and interesting people. It’s always been about the songs.” 

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada 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. Dvorak has also been on the faculty of Chicago’s venerable Old Town School of Folk Music since 1986.

“At this stage of the game, I feel like I’m doing my best work,” said Dvorak. "I’m planning on getting the new recording out this autumn and I’m 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.”

The Steel Beam Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre located in the heart of historic St. Charles, and is currently presenting its 18th season.
