Sandy Schuman

Sandy Schuman is fascinated by familiar things and their unfamiliar stories. He brings folk tales and historical sagas to life (“some of our folklore is truly unbelievable, some of our history is even more so”) and reveals the little-known stories behind some of our best-known songs. When you hear him play the guitar and sing, you’ll know why he calls himself a storyteller! He is a winner of the Susquehanna Folk Festival Liars Contest and the St. Louis Jewish Storytelling Contest and has been featured at The Northeast Storytelling Conference, Riverway Storytelling Festival, Caffè Lena, Proctors, Tellabration, and Limmud Boston. His stories and related articles have been published in 100 Lives, Distressing Damsels, Memoir Magazine, New Mitzvah Stories, Stonecrop Review, Stories We Tell, Story Club Magazine, Storytelling Magazine, Tablet, The Ethicist, The Story Cookbook, Voices: The Journal of New York Folklore, in his book, Welcome to Chelm’s Pond, and on his blog, Another Side to the Story. Sandy is a member of the Story Circle of the Capital District, Northeast Storytelling, National Storytelling Network, Jewish Storytelling Coalition, and Lifetime Arts Creative Aging Roster.
