"Sophie Wellington's dancing reveals a deep knowledge and love of Appalachian music and spot on rhythmic sensibilities, enhanced by a jazz education. Her singular approach to percussive dance opens new possibilities where we thought there were none left!" - Nic Gareiss
Sophie Mae Wellington is a Boston-based musician who draws inspiration from the deep communities of traditional music and dance. Originally from Staunton, VA, she is an old time fiddle player, percussive dancer, and jazz vocalist. These creative art forms have brought her to Boston where she is studying vocal improvisation at Berklee College of Music, set to graduate in the fall of 2021.
Sophie is a dynamic performer. Whether she's weaving her voice through lavish jazz melody and harmony, driving fiddle tunes, or intricately flatfooting Southern Appalachian rhythms, Sophie engages audiences with a sophisticated musical adventure.
