Biography

Bill (Belinda) Jones is a singer and multi-instrumentalist (accordion, piano, flute and Irish whistle) performing in the Irish ceilidh tradition.

In February 2001, less than a year after releasing her debut album Turn to Me, Bill won the Horizon (Best Newcomer) Award at the BBC Folk Awards.

Bill spent her childhood training as a classical pianist/flautist and playing in her dad’s ceilidh band. As a music student in London she studied jazz piano, whilst spending all her evenings playing flute in Irish sessions. From 1994 - 1996, Bill played keyboard and accordion in London-based indie band The Wise Wound, playing at venues across London and festivals such as Glastonbury. Over the last few years she has also proved herself an accomplished classical and folk tutor, running vocal and instrumental workshops and leading weekly flute/whistle classes for Folkworks.

Bill has released three studio albums. Turn to Me was released in March 2000, Panchpuran followed in May 2001, and Two Year Winter was released in July 2003. All have received critical acclaim. In November 2001, Bill also released a limited edition four song EP, Bits & Pieces, and in September 2002 a live album - The Bill Jones Band “Live at The Live”. The most recent addition to Bill’s discography is the Faire Winds Live CD. Released in September 2003, it is a six song CD recorded during Bill’s first USA tour with the Faire Winds (Bill, Anne Hills and Aoife Clancy).
