Album Notes
People remember what Mark Dvorak sings. His roots are in Chicago but since 1981, he has been criss-crossing 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 little town or out-of-the-way place 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 Dvorak is a folk singer's folk singer who follows unerringly in the footsteps of artists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Lead Belly, Big Bill Broonzy and Art Thieme. With hundreds of songs in his repertoire, he is an entertainer whose performances are marked with a clear knowledge of his music and art and also with an understanding of what a given audience is ready to listen to. His natural style of performing can make an old song sound new and a new song sound familiar. Entertaining warmth, sincerity, distinctive talent and variety in presentation have distinguished Mark Dvorak as on of today's important folk artists.

Gina Rosset Smith

Streets of old Chicago
nice banjo work;some songs could use a faster tempo(eg.Sloop John B.)

Kevin Hall

Excellent CD
I've had this CD for several years now and today's listen prompted me to write a review.I thought there would be more reviews as this is a very accomplished and professional recording. The opening track is very evocative and took me back to my old Bogan,Martin & Amstrong lp's (Rounder Records, Flying Fish Records) but neither has this track. I notice from the notes that he travels to out of the way places...well his CD made it to me in Melbourne,Australia.
