Bill (Belinda), with her lively style and unpretentious approach, launched herself onto the UK folk scene in 1999, starting out by singing a couple of songs in local folk clubs, and learning her craft. 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.
Born in Staffordshire but now based in the North East for over 20 years, Bill plays accordion, piano, and Irish whistle, as well as having a sweet and beautiful voice. Bill's live set features gentle songs to tug at your heart, energetic sets to get your feet tapping, and tales to enthrall, all bound together by gentle humour.
