For the Telegraph

ALTON – Singer and songwriter Mark Dvorak will present an all-ages family concert called “What a Wonderful World” on Tuesday, May 7, at 6:30 p.m., at the Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway, in Alton.

Dvorak is a singer and storyteller who accompanies himself on guitar, five-string banjo, twelve-string guitar and other instruments. He has been a Hayner Library favorite for almost twenty years.

In 2012, WFMT’s Rich Warren, host of “The Midnight Special,” called Dvorak “Chicago’s official troubadour,” a nickname previously given to Old Town School of Folk Music founder Win Stracke and later to the pioneering folk singer and Dvorak mentor Fred Holstein. The Folk Alliance Region Midwest named Dvorak the recipient of the 2013 Lantern Bearer Award, an award given to an individual who has contributed to folk performing arts and the folk music and dance community for twenty-five years or more.
