Senior Outreach 2021

Since 1994, Folklore Village has been bringing concerts and interactive performances to older and disabled adults in our area through our Senior Outreach programs. All are welcome to our Senior Outreach events, from recently retired folks, to people living in care homes, to folks living at home and looking for fun and accessible activities. Check the listings below to see what Senior Outreach programs we have going on now!

All Senior Outreach events are free to seniors and caregivers.

COVID Safety: Masks or proof of vaccination are required while indoors at Folklore Village until further notice. Unvaccinated folks not wearing masks are welcome to sit on the porch off our hall–the doors can be opened wide for full visibility. Thank you for your cooperation!


Senior Concerts

KG & The Ranger

Saddle up your imagination for a ride to the Old West with award-winning cowboy yodelers KG & The Ranger. Their smooth harmony singing will bring back memories of the Sons Of The Pioneers, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and other cowboy stars of the Silver Screen. They yodel in harmony and keep the audience entranced with interesting bits of history about the cowboy songs they sing.

Free concert for seniors and caregivers.

Hosted in Farwell Hall at Folklore Village. Space is wheelchair-accessible. Light snacks and drinks will be provided.

Trippers Lite Band
Wednesday, September 22 | 1-2 PM
The Trippers Lite Band plays country, bluegrass, and gospel music and is dedicated to providing enjoyable musical entertainment for senior citizens. They have become “regulars” at many senior centers and senior living facilities. The Trippers enjoy restoring meaning and connection in the lives of seniors and bringing back fond memories by playing music older adults will remember from their younger years.

Free concert for seniors and caregivers.
