FolktoberFest 2019
Music & Potlucks presents 3rd Annual FolktoberFest featuring Songwriters in the Round: Mark Dvorak, Michael Peter Smith and Heather Styka.

FitzGerald's SideBar is the place to be Sunday, October 6th as we gather to celebrate folk music, and the fall season.

Michael Smith, once called "the greatest songwriter in the English language" by Rolling Stone Magazine, might be best known for his song The Dutchman. Smith's rich and challenging songs have been covered by more than 40 artists including Suzy Bogguss and Steve Goodman.  

Heather Styka "puts her vocal prowess on full display alongside her talent for telling stories in her most recent well received album North.' Sykas refreshing and melodic singing and guitar playing will leave you wanting more!

Mark Dvorak is a prolific songwriter and performer, authentic storyteller, and award-winning teacher at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. Chicago Tribune calls Dvorak "Chicago's Official Troubadour."
