Storytellers is a television music series produced by the VH1 network.
In each episode artists perform in front of a (mostly small and intimate) live audience, and tell stories about their music, writing experiences and memories, somewhat similar to MTV Unplugged. The show started in 1996 with a broadcast of Ray Davies, during his "Storyteller" tour, and took its name from this first show.
Over 80 episodes have aired, and many of the performances have subsequently been released on CD or DVD. "Best of" collections have also been released.
