About the Show
Great stories can change your world. Join The Apple Seed for tall tales, fairy tales, folk tales, personal tales, historical tales, and more! Hosted by storyteller Sam Payne. A production of BYUradio.
Sam Payne's performances of his original stories and jazz-inflected folk music have turned the heads of critics and audiences around the west. Alone or part of Savoy, his jazz quartet, Payne's arresting stage presence, his craft as a poet/storyteller, and his soaring tenor voice have established him as an enduring and engaging performer. A veteran of the Timpanogos and Weber storytelling festivals, Payne has brought his engaging stories and jazz-inflected folk tunes to halls in Canada, Bulgaria, and Tokyo and from coast to coast in the United States. In addition to maintaining a career as a performing artist, he serves as the school director of Pioneer High School for the Performing Arts and hosts "The Apple Seed," a podcast featuring stories from around the world.
