Ray Posch, Folk Singer

That's me on the right. I am a lover of folk music and have been a folk singer for most of my life, although I didn't play guitar and sing folk songs as much during my career in information technology (which was pretty demanding).

I grew up in the 50s and 60s, taught myself to play guitar, and became a lead singer in a rock band AND was in folk groups throughout my high school and college years. I also had lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins and led the sing-alongs for family get-togethers on holidays and birthdays.

Now I'm singing folk music both informally and professionally for the senior audiences who grew up with those songs and want to hear them and sing along with them again.

Remember "classic" folk songs like:

Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Blowin in the Wind

If I Had a Hammer

This Land is Your Land

On Top of Old Smokey

Green Green

Michael Row the Boat Ashore

Tom Dooley

Five Hundred Miles

Walk Right In

Streets of Laredo (Smothers Brothers comedy version)

Country Roads

Early Morning Rain

Goodnight Irene

Greenfields

Scotch and Soda

Greenback Dollar

The Battle of New Orleans

I play guitar and sing these songs (and more) for you to sing along with or dance to if you like. And I absolutely love interacting with the audience and sharing some of the history of, or interesting tidbits about, the songs or the folk music artists who made the songs popular like:

  • Peter Paul and Mary
  • Kingston Trio
  • Bob Dylan
  • John Denver
  • The Weavers
  • New Christy Minstrels
  • The Highwaymen
  • Pete Seeger
  • Woody Guthrie
  • Rooftop Singers
  • Gordon Lightfoot
  • The Brothers Four
  • Johnny Horton
  • Burl Ives

Below are some samples of me playing my guitar and singing.
