Reviewed 2011-04-25 
Old-fashioned, string-band folk. Oozes authenticity and earnestness. The songs (all but a few written by Dvorak) are simple, fun, sometimes corny, sometimes too sappy. Dvorak plays finger-style guitar and banjo. His voice is pleasant, slightly high and folky; a bit like James Taylor’s. Accompanied by mandolin, guitar, bass, fiddle, drums, and backing vocals.
RIYL: “Someone’s in the Kitchen with Dinah”, "You Are My Sunshine”, “John Henry”

No FCC issues.

1. * Witty song about getting older. Clever lyrics. Nice vocal harmonies. Like a children’s song, but folk giants Pete Seeger & Burl Ives did children’s songs too. (3:38)
2. * Ah shucks; this is one corny love song. RIYL Don Williams. Fine pedal steel. (3:19)
3. ** Comically hick country-folk. Love it! LOL. Guitar & mandolin trade licks. (3:16)
4. A small town’s boy is killed in the war. The sentiment is ruined by cloying pathos. (3:14)
5. ** Boy-girl duet in a slow, waltz time. Like 50s country (rather than folk). (3:56)
6. Brownie McGee song. His voice doesn’t match the country-blues. (3:13)
7. A nice country-ish ballad. Good guitar and pedal steel. (4:08)
8. * Like a campfire song. Great banjo (like an Earl Scruggs breakdown). Fun lyric. (3:37)
9. Trying to make it in hard times in America. A bit of a Mexican sway. (5:23)
10. ** Ode to his guitar. Catchy & clever. Another campfire song. And a highlight. (4:07)
11. Sad song to a lover who’s leaving. Very nice guitar picking and backing vocals. (3:19)
12. * Lament on the ending of a summertime romance. Nice blusy-jazzy guitar work. (4:10)
13. Another children’s song. Two guitarists pickin’ together in the middle chorus. (3:41)
14. * Most upbeat & up-tempo song. On stage, this would be the big-group finale. (2:53)
15. Like something you’d hear at a folk church service. Vocal trio (MMF) is nice. (3:29)
