Mark Dvorak is a modern day troubadour who has

never stopped performing, writing and recording. He has

been called “a folk singer’s folk singer” with “an

encyclopedic knowledge of traditional songs.” His original

songs are described as “wondrous” and “profound.”

Though Mark often appears in theaters and on festival

stages, he is also at home in a more intimate setting.

His concerts are a mix of the familiar and the new,

traditional folk and standards from the American

songbook. He plays authentic country blues guitar and

picks great old-time banjo. Mark enjoys involving his

audiences in sing-along songs, just like The Weavers used

to do, and mixes in his own well-crafted and infectious

originals.

Mark has a refreshing, down-to-earth stage presence, and

is a very engaging performer. He sings with a clear,

signature voice, and he likes to joke around with the folks

who attend his shows. Throughout the program he’ll

interject personal anecdotes and add a touch of history or

social context to the performance.
