Just Something My Grandma Used to Sing

BRIDGEVIEW IL - The Bridgeview Public Library welcomes Chicago’s “official troubadour” Mark Dvorak to its performance series on Thursday, February 22 at 6:30 pm. The library is located at 7840 W. 79th Street.

Dvorak will present “Just Something My Grandma Used to Sing,” an autobiographical program of songs and stories.


“My grandma used to sing all time, around the house and on car rides,” said Dvorak. “She was also in Sweet Adelienes group in the 1950s and knew lots of old songs from the 30s and 40s. Over the years I’ve been adding arrangements of these classics to my repertoire.”

“Mark has performed a number of times,” said Adult Program Coordinator Jennifer Bonbrake. “He’s a perfect fit for our performance series,” she said.

“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 more than twenty-five years. His performances are elegant, rich and powerful.”

Dvorak is currently working on his eighteenth CD release, “Let Love Go On.” “I’ve been on the road for almost two years solid,” said the singer. “And I’ve been working on whole new bunch of songs. I am certainly looking forward to singing again in Bridgeview."

Admission to the program is free. Contact the Bridgeview Public Library for more information at 708 458 2880. or visit their web site at www.bridgeviewlibrary.org. To learn more about Mark Dvorak, visit his homepage at www.markdvorak.com.
