Playing cello is usually confined to gaining a seat in one of the world's leading orchestras, not so for Adam Hurst. He represents a very good example of how possibilities can be achieved if one remains focused on one''s true purpose and pursue one's own true passion.
Adam plays on his own hand made version of an electric "gypsy cello", possibly, originally a cello made for and by gypsies, likely accounting for the smaller body, making it easier to transport. Most notable among other features of this cello and clearly heard in Dusk is a drone string that continuously resonates.
