Ray Posch, Folk Singer

That's me on the right. I am a lover of folk music and have been a casual folk singer for most of my life.

Now I'm singing folk music for the senior audiences who grew up with those songs and want to hear them and sing along with them again. I play guitar and sing songs from many different time periods and have done more than 300 performances in the Denver area.

Seniors in their 80s and 90s absolutely love the older songs I sing like:

You Are My Sunshine
Goodnight Irene
My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain
Bicycle Built for Two
Oh! Susanna
I've Been Working on the Railroad
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
On Top of Old Smokey
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Home on the Range
In the Good Old Summertime
He's Got the Whole World in His Hands
and many, many more

Folk songs of the 1950s and 60s that I sing include:

If I Had a Hammer
This Land is Your Land
Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
Blowin in the Wind
Michael Row the Boat Ashore
Tom Dooley

Green Green
Today (While the Blossoms)
Five Hundred Miles
Walk Right In
Gentle on My Mind
Take Me Home, Country Roads
Leavin' on a Jet Plane
Early Morning Rain
Try to Remember
Scotch and Soda
Hey Good Lookin'
Sixteen Tons
The Battle of New Orleans
and many, many more

I play guitar and sing these songs (and more) for seniors to enjoy and sing along with.  And I absolutely love interacting with the audience and sharing some of the history of the songs or the folk music artists who made the songs popular like:

  • Peter Paul and Mary
  • Kingston Trio
  • The Weavers
  • Bob Dylan
  • John Denver
  • Glen Campbell
  • New Christy Minstrels
  • Burl Ives
  • The Highwaymen
  • Pete Seeger
  • Woody Guthrie
  • Hank Williams
  • Tennessee Ernie Ford
  • Gordon Lightfoot
  • The Brothers Four
    and many others

Testimonials: Here are some testimonials from activities directors at Denver area retirement communities:

"The energy, joy, and love that Ray brings my residents are unmatched. Ray is truly a professional with a great passion for folk music. Every month he creates a time capsule of music performance that won't be forgotten by those present. We love him." ~Matthew, Brookdale Pinehurst Park

"Ray is a wonderful entertainer for my Happy Hour here at Sky Pointe Retirement Resort. All of the Residents love him and really enjoy singing along with him. What a great way to end the week." ~Whitney

Standard Rate: For senior communities, I offer performances of 60 minutes for $100 standard rate for most (and I give a lower rate to smaller centers). And please note that I will do a first-time performance at a senior living facility for FREE. Call now to take advantage of this offer. Your groups will love these shows, and after seeing one, most facilities want to have me back on a regular schedule.

For other venues, I charge a higher negotiable rate.

I also am a Voice for Love (not religion-based). I encourage seniors and others to change from fear-based thinking to love-based thinking. It can change one's experience of life to be much more positive, healthier, happier, and rewarding. I speak from my own experience, and it has changed my life.
