Mark Dvorak used his time wisely during the pandemic. He put together a new album and a new book entitled 31 Winters.  It chronicles his experience of teaching at the Old Town School of Music over the past 31 years.  On the show, Mark recalls discovering his love of music and songwriting at the school when he was just 19. At that time, he uncovered the work of musicians like Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Sonny Houston and Huddie Ledbetter (Lead Belly.)
