Friday 7th December
The Carlile Institute
Rounding off our 2018 music programme in fine style is outstanding Scottish artist The Jellyman’s Daughter, blending Americana, folk/roots, a touch of bluegrass and even a hint of pop. Mixing some gorgeous, haunting vocal harmonies with visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, Edinburgh’s Emily Kelly and Graham Coe (also a member of BBC Folk Awards nominated band, Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys) are exceptional performers and songwriters, and are joined in concert by regular band member and outstanding instrumentalist Jamie Francis on banjo. The Jellyman’s Daughter have gigged extensively in the UK, Europe and Canada, and recently completed their first extensive tour of the USA. Their second album “Dead Reckoning” (featuring a 16-piece string orchestra) was released in May 2018 to an avalanche of glowing reviews. They have recently been featured on Mark Radcliffe’s flagship BBC Radio Two Folk Show, and are regularly championed by Ricky Ross on BBC Radio Scotland.
“Dead Reckoning is a gem of an album which warrants wide exposure….on the evidence of this recording, The Jellyman’s Daughter have plotted a careful course and are set fair for the greater horizons that undoubtedly lie ahead”. – Folk Radio UK
We saw The Jellyman’s Daughter in concert back in the spring and we’re delighted to have booked them for our live music series in Meltham! The Carlile Institute is a beautiful historic building in the centre of Meltham village, close to Huddersfield and Holmfirth. The first floor Jubilee Room is an ideal setting for intimate concerts. There is a lift for accessibility, free parking directly behind the building and a bus stop right outside.
