His roots are in Chicago, but since 1981 MARK DVORAK has been crisscrossing the country performing, teaching and learning all the while. He's visited big cities where his concerts and recordings have been hailed as "a refreshing portrait of the living folk tradition,” and he's traveled many a back road to some out-of-the-way place or little town where the sounds and songs of the American experience seem more deeply rooted; where his performance comes across like a friendly conversation with neighbors. Mark has been called “a folk singer’s folk singer who follows unerringly in the footsteps of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie,” and his song writing has been called “wondrous” and “profound.” Dvorak’s latest CD, Every Step of the Way was recently released on the Waterbug label is receiving wide acclaim in the United States and abroad.
