The Timpanogos Storytelling Festival has been delighting fans of the medium for the past 31 years. And this year the festival will be more accessible than ever! The virtual event will feature some of the most renowned tellers in the business, many of whom you'll hear on today's episode of The Apple Seed, including Pippa White, Donna Washington, Ed Stivender, and of course, Donald Davis. For tickets to see some of your favorite storytellers right from the comfort of your own home, visit timpfest.org On today's episode of The Apple Seed, enjoy the following: "The Red Scooter" by Donald Davis (11:38) There's no storyteller that personifies the spirit of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival quite like North Carolina storyteller Donald Davis does. He's been on stage at Timp just about every year for all of its 31 years. Here he shares a Christmas memory that's enjoyable year-round. "The Great Blizzard of 1888" by Pippa White (10:28) Pippa White is known for telling beautiful, historical tales, often in rhyme. This next story - a favorite of ours - is about a teacher, and a classroom full of kids during "The Great Blizzard of 1888". "Like Bread Loves Salt" by Ed Stivender (14:31) Here's a story from another Timp-favorite, Ed Stivender. It's about an aging king who dsires to pass his throne on to one of his three lovely daughters. Whoever provides the best answer to the question, 'Which one of you loves me the most?', will receive the best parcel of land. "Sody Saluradus" by Donna Washington (10:24) Have you ever had a difficult time remembering a key piece of information? Perhaps the next time you struggle to remember something you should put it to a song. Although, in the case of this story, "Sody Saluradus", from Timp-newcomer, Donna Washington, a little jingle gets the characters into quite a bit of trouble. "Museum of Your Life" by Donald Davis (2:29) Donald Davis wraps up a wonderul hour of storytelling with a plea to listeners to share stories with their loved ones.
