Ligatures are covered in the notation reference manual, in the "Ancient
notation" section: NR 2.9.2 Ancient notation—common features > Ligatures
http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/notation/ancient-notation_002d_002dcommon-features.html#ligatures

\override LigatureBracket #'direction = #DOWN

Ligatures should not be confused with "Analysis brackets", which is
maybe what you are actually looking for.  They are explained in
NR 1.7.2 Editorial annotations Outside the staff > Analysis brackets
http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/notation/outside-the-staff.html#analysis-brackets

Cheers,
