Folk artist, singer-songwriter Dvorak returns to Rockford November 11

ROCKFORD IL - Inscape Collective, 201 7th Street, welcomes folk singer-songwriter and guitarist Mark Dvorak back to Midtown for a 7:00 pm concert on Saturday, November 11.

The Inscape retail shop sells products from diverse female artists, artisans and entrepreneurs. Proceeds from our sales go towards subsidizing a wide-array of life-enhancing programming to ensure that it is accessible to women of all socio-economic backgrounds. 

“We offer programs ranging from the creative arts, holistic health, exercise and entrepreneurial skills, to meditation and mindfulness,” said Ruth Jackson co-owner of Inscape. “Mark has become an absolute favorite here in the Rockford. We’re thrilled to carry on the tradition of presenting music in our beautiful Midtown space, and thrilled Mark will be joining us."

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 preparing to publish his fourth book of essays, 31 Winters,  which reflects on his long journey through music and teaching.

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.”
