Many months ago I was relaxing at the downtown farmer’s market and out of the clamor and confusion of that Saturday, I heard the most captivating and eerie sound. Now, I’m a sucker for any kind of cello music, especially with a middle eastern or slavic sound but this was even more unusual. I was sitting behind the musician and when I finally got a look at what he was playing, it was no ordinary cello. Turns out that Adam Hurst made his one-of-a-kind “gypsy cello”. He’s a local Portland artist who plays original, poignant and beautiful music on a 6 string kind of mini cello. I believe he has a website. Check him out if you get a chance.
