BBC Review

Just four years on from her first performance, Bill Jones must be pinching herself. In that time she's released two award-winning albums (Turn To Me, Panchpuran) and an EP; she's won the Best Newcomer award at the 2001 BBC Folk awards and has just emerged triumphant from a performance at WOMAD on the eve of a headlining national tour. Now it's time for album number three. Along with the release of Jim Moray's debut album Sweet England, with its blend of folk standards and 21st century technology, and Eliza Carthy's Anglicana receiving a Mercury nomination, Two Year Winter just goes to show how folk music benefits from this type of young blood.

There certainly must be something in the North East's water at the moment, with so much young talent emerging from the region. Bill's approach is, on the surface, a little more traditional than many, yet get a little deeper and there's more to this stuff than a sweet voice. Previous work showed a strong theme of the injustices of working class life but this time around Bill (that's short for Belinda, if you didn't already know) has gone for a set of tunes that seem more concerned with the injustice of the hearts affairs.

There's still a fair smattering of traditional songs, but all take love as their subject, whether it be innocent, (''The Haymakers''), forbidden (''The Holland Mistress''), abusive (''Hey Away'') or even haunted (''The Lovers Ghost''). Her accordion playing also shows no sign of slacking off either as she negotiates numerous reels and jigs with tastefully sparse accompaniment from David Wood (guitar), Stewart Hardy (violin) and especially the haunting cello of Shanti Paul Jayasinha.

Her true depth is revealed on a song like ''The Story Of Our Darling Grace'' where the heroine's tale is retold to show how media manipulation isnt just a present-day problem. The only danger lies in the fact that such a tragic story could be obscured by the delicate Irish tune that lifts it. Yet Two Year Winter demonstrates conclusively how Bill - in showing no fear in tackling a genre that many would feel you have to be born and raised in (and remember, she was a precocious classical talent in her youth) - has become indispensable in the future of British folk music. --Chris Jones

Format: Audio CD
"Two Year Winter" is the third studio album from the multi-talented folk artist Bill (Belinda) Jones and is a great addition to what has gone before and signals much hope for future releases.
Although the style of the tracks is firmly in the folk genre that doesn't mean to say that all corners of this fashion aren't covered.
The album opens with the gentle loveliness of "From my window" a guitar and piano led sweet song and then it's into the much more jolly sounding jig of "The Holland Mistress" although the subject matter is in strict contrast to the cheerful music. There's also the very traditional story line of "The Lover's Ghost" but with its rather more contemporary sounding jazz treatment. Other album highlights are the very Romany sounding "The Story of our Darling Grace" with its very English subject matter and soaring final track "Bide".
Favourite song for me is the sweet and charming "Hey Away" a simple child's tune that is made something special by both the pure harmony singing and the beautiful fiddle work.
All in all this is a fine album and an excellent introduction into the wonderful and varied world of folk as Bill's songs are all easily accessible and never convoluted or pretentious.
Apparently it is now possible to obtain this album with Bill's earlier release, the EP "Bits and Pieces" as a bonus second disk, so be sure to look out for this version.

Easy to listen to again and again and again. Jones successfully takes traditional folk and performs it for the twenty first century ear.

Delightful contrasts from the toe tapping 'Holland Mistress' to the thoughtful 'Two Year Winter' title track, from the heartwrenching 'Lover's Ghost' to the equally heartwrenching but infinitely more hopefully and cheery 'Hey Away' prove that this cd has been thoughtfully produced - the tracks follow each other in a mosaic of jolly knees up vs beautiful slow ballad. Unlike some of the stuff I possess by more famous folk artists, this cd can stay in my car going round and round for weeks and I never get bored of it.

Bill's magnificent voice can handle all of the above with ease, and is perfectly complimented by Miranda Sykes' rich harmony vocals.

If you like any type of folk, buy it. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars (Add a few stars... this is a classic.) 22 Aug. 2003
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
English folk singer Bill Jones (a gal, by the way) is one of the most striking younger new artists to come around in quite some time. This is her third album to be released domestically in the United States, and it's a real winner. Amazingly, Jones just picks up greater depth and resonance as she goes along... This 2-CD set -- one disc of twelve sad, fabulous songs, and an additional four-song "Bits And Pieces" disc that sounds much like the first -- is a rich and rewarding listen, with a reflective, doleful air that is sustained over its entire length. Compared to her other albums, this set has more emphasis on new compositions, by Jones herself and contemporaries such as Pete Morton, Anne Hills and Brian Bedford, and though there is less "trad. arr." material, the entire album has a deep, old-world feel to it. What else can I say? This is another really great record; if you've heard her earlier albums, this one is at least their equal. Celtic/British trad fans should definitely snap it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another beauty 17 Nov. 2008
By J. TIMMERMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another gorgeous album from Bill. Like Heidi Talbot she sings both traditional and contemporary songs, and as on Heidi's albums, the trad ones are the better, the others being rather lightweight and not especially memorable. Still, most of the album is traditional. A pity the 4-tracker wasn't added to the original album so it could all be heard in one session. Beautiful stuff though, English trad folk song at its best.
