JELLY ELLINGTON UNPLUGGED
Jelly has been making his mark on the Austin music scene, recently voted Top 10 "Best Guitarist" in 2018 Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards. Widely known in ATX as true rocker at heart, you can usually catch Jelly shredding stages with his full band, but through his “unplugged” sessions Jelly displays his acoustic side. The unplugged performance features stripped down and intimate arrangements of his originals, funky covers and instrumentals vibrating classical, flamenco, and bluegrass influences. Perfect for intimate spaces or private events, Jelly Unplugged features the guitarist solo with vocals or as a duo accompanied by a percussionist.
Jonathan “Jelly” Ellington is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in Austin, TX by way of the mountains of Asheville, NC.

Jelly has developed a reputation for exciting and untamed live performances, and has shared the stage and recorded with Grammy Award-winning artists. He has been making his mark on the Austin scene, recently voted Top 10 "Best Guitarist" in 2018 Austin Chronicle Austin Music Awards.
