Sunday Coffee House Concert

Sunday Coffee House Concert with Mark Dvorak at Prospect Heights Library May 21

PROSPECT HEIGHTS IL - The Prospect Heights Library, 12 N. Elm Street, welcomes folk singer songwriter, banjo player and storyteller Mark Dvorak to it’s performance series for a “Coffee House Concert” on Sunday, May 21 at 2:00 pm.

The program features sing-along folk favorites, classics from the Great American Songbook, 5-string banjo picking and plenty of humor. 


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.” 

The program is free to the public. Register online here. For information contact the Prospect Heights Public Library at 847.259.3500 or visit the Prospect Heights Public Library District at
