Wayne McKay — Founder & Executive Director / Cache Valley Storytelling Festival


Live TV News Interview



Wayne McKay is a singing entertainer and voice artist, who, a yarn spinner at heart, integrates stories into his performances.  Ironically, he was completely unaware of what a professional storyteller was or what they did until a few years ago. But, once he found out he wholeheartedly embraced the art form and created the Cache Valley Storytelling Festival (www.cachefest.com) in Logan Utah where he is the executive director of both the institute and festival.

Wayne has a bachelors with a double major from Weber State University in Communication – Broadcasting and Theatre – Acting/Directing as well as a Masters from Utah State University in Instructional Design and Technology. He was an international educational consultant and is first and foremost a consummate entertainer.

His alter ego at home and on stage is his sweetheart of 43 years, Katie McKay. They have two beautiful daughters and 10 priceless grandchildren.
