Dvorak is celebrating the launch of his 20th recorded release, Live & Alone, recorded during the great pandemic in an empty concert hall and the publication of 31 Winters: Finding the Folk Way, a collection of essays and stories reflecting on his long journey through teaching and music. 

“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 called him “masterful,” and the Fox Valley Folk Festival describes him as “a living archive of song and style.” In 2012 WFMT 98.7 fm Midnight Special host Rich Warren named him Chicago’s “official troubadour.”

Mark has given concerts in almost all of the United States and has made visits to Finland, Canada and Ireland. He has won awards for children’s music, journalism 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.
