Name: Jelly
Brief Blurb: Jelly is a bit-of-this/bit-of-that musical group from Queensland’s Granite Belt. They are well known entertainers locally where they play at Whiskey Gully Wines, Severnlea. Exposure to the tourist traffic there has given them a wider following in south east Queensland. John Arlidge and daughter Emily own the winery and the group grew out of their performances in the restaurant. When singer/songwriter/guitarist Lee Williams joined them, Jelly was formed (moulded?). Lee is a pro musician who spent most of his career touring the USA, Australia and many other parts of the world. He’s a jazz/swing specialist so they do a bit of that. John is an amateur who has been finger pickin’ guitar and singing for 40 years -- he loves the old Delta Blues so they do a bit of that. Eighteen year old Emily is a sweet kid who used to do as she was told but doesn’t any more, but she likes pretty much anything musically and is a great contributor and voracious absorber of musical knowledge. As well as a little of their own stuff they do songs by Robert Johnson, Eric Clapton, Eugene McDaniels, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Ella Fitzgerald, Mark Knoffler, Leonard Cohen, Don McLean, Nora Jones, James Taylor and many others. Their music is characterised by the complementary picking styles of Lee and John along with simple vocal harmonies and an undercurrent of humour.
