The Wild Rose Moon, 115 Michigan Street, welcomes folk singer-songwriter, Mark Dvorak, back to its concert stage on Saturday, November 19 at 7:00 pm.
Dvorak is busy at work on his 20th CD release Live & Alone, recorded in an empty concert hall during the height of the pandemic lockdown. 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.”
“Mark is one of those special artists who has used his gift of song to bring people together,” said Artistic Director George Schricker, who founded the Wild Rose Moon in 2015. “He is a remarkable human being who carries the spirit of folk music in his belly, his voice, and his big, big heart.”
General admission seating is $15. Order tickets online at www.wildrosemoon.com. Tickets are also available locally at ASK for Flowers and Culver Coffee Company. For information phone the Wild Rose Moon at 574.276.1185.
