Bill Wellington began presenting programs at elementary schools in 1977 in West Virginia, where he served as artist-in-residence in several mountain communities. Since that time he has performed everywhere from one-room schoolhouses to elementary schools with over 1,400 children.
Bill is an energetic performer who immediately creates a rapport with his school-age audience, whether they are kindergartners or eighth graders. The question children ask the most after seeing Bill perform is "When is he coming back?" The Radio WOOF school assembly is a celebration of folklore featuring Bill Wellington's lively banjo music, funny folk songs, fancy fiddling, and fantastic storytelling.
Bill's enthusiastically shares his message that folklore, whether in the form of a familiar jump-rope-rhyme or a spellbinding story from another land, is a marvelous treasure we have inherited.
