Ray Naylor has been writing songs since 1977 and performing since 1980. Within a year of playing at open mics, Ray opened for Charlie King and Judy Gorman Jacobs in the first concert sponsored by Swords into Plowshares, a local Philadelphia organization that produced concerts of progressive performers, such as Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Richie Havens, and many others. In 1997 and 2017 Ray had the honor of playing at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Ray has continued to perform up to the present. He has also played on the Gene Shay Folk Show, both at WHYY-FM and WXPN-FM. Ray Naylor has two CDs, Slow Cooker and No Shrink Wrap. In addition to his own music, Ray has always helped other artists in a number of ways including managing three performing songwriters, hosting a number of open mics, publishing a newsletter on open mics, booking several venues, and producing two concert series. Ray produced a YouTube show called “The Performing Songwriter” and currently produces and hosts a radio program on WPPM-FM called Philly Folk Scene.
