PALOS PARK IL - The Center, 12700 Southwest Highway welcomes back guitarist, folk artist and singer songwriter Mark Dvorak to the Luncheon and Show series Tuesday, November 21 at 12:00 noon..


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.”

“Mark played for us last spring,” said program director Mark Walker. “He’s become a favorite of The Center audienence and we’re thrilled to have him back.” 

The Center’s mission is to give people of all faiths, backgrounds, and ages the space to dream, grow and become fully alive - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

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.”
