Chicago folk troubadour to perform in Flat Rock July 16

FLAT ROCK IL - Sugar Creek Lodge, 1437 N. State Highway 1, welcomes folk singer-songwriter Mark Dvorak to its concert stage on Saturday July 16 at 7:00 pm.


”We’ve heard about Mark and his music for years," said Sugar Creek Lodge manager K.E. Newell. “We’re glad we are finally able to feature him in our concert series."

Dvorak is busy at work on his 20th CD release Live & Alone, recorded in an empty concert hall during the height of the pandemic lock down. He is also planning to publish his fourth book of essays, 31 Winters,  which reflects on his long journey through music and teaching.

“At this stage of the game,” said the singer from his home outside Chicago, Illinois, “I feel like I’m doing my best work.” 

The Chicago Tribune has called Dvorak “masterful,” and the Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “a living archive of song and style.” Dvorak has won awards for journalism and children’s music, and was honored in 2013 with the FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International. In 2008 he received the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and in 2012 Rich Warren, long time host of The Midnight Special radio program named Dvorak “Chicago’s official troubadour.” 

A donation of $15 is suggested for admission. Call (618) 843-3708 for reservations and information, or email cknew@frtci.net.
