AN acclaimed duo at an intriguing crossroads between genres will take up the Salt Sessions mantle at the weekend.

The latest in a popular series of gigs at the Lion Salt Works Museum, the event on Saturday, February 22 will see The Jellyman's Daughter take to the stage.

Comprising guitarist Emily Kelly and cellist Graham Coe, their acclaimed music lands squarely in the middle of an fusion between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul.

Mixing their unique vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and mandolin, the duo write their songs with a focus on producing something new.

The Edinburgh-based duo have been much applauded since their self-titled debut album for their ‘exquisite vocals and harmonies and dynamic and expressive cello playing’.

Since 2018 they have taken their distinctive sound and entrancing music on tour across the UK, Europe, America, Canada and Australia to much critical acclaim.

Cllr Louise Gittins is the leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, and cabinet member for wellbeing.

She said: “The Lion Salt Works Museum’s historic setting has proved to be a wonderful place to listen to music and it great to be starting off the Salt Work Sessions’ new year so strongly with this acclaimed duo.”

Doors open at 7.15pm on Saturday, with parking free and tickets costing £11 per person.

Tickets can be bought online through or by emailing

The Lion Salt Works Museum tells the story of salt through fun, interactive displays, a theatrical lighting, sound and film experience and a walk-in ‘subsiding house’. There is no charge to visit the bespoke play area, butterfly garden, café or shop.

Since beginning in September 2018, the Salt Sessions have welcomed Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, Sam Kelly and Jamie Francis, and Martin Simpson.
