About the event

Celloman presents his new album: Cello Moods & Broods. The album, released in December 2023, contains a collection of beautifully melodic original compositions for Cello duo, trio and quartet and is: 

“…a fine reminder of the emotional power of the cello” - All About Jazz

This Entertaining and informative solo cello show is split into two halves. The first half discusses, through played examples, the changing role of the cello in history from bass instrument to melodic instrument. The cello is then introduced as a harmonic instrument, much like the guitar, through a new style of cello playing called Arpezzato, a combination of the words ‘Arpeggio’ and ‘Pizzicato’. Playing examples taken from his album Arpezzato Cello, Ivan uses finger techniques imported from the world of Pop/Rock, Blues and Jazz including: ‘hammer-on’, ‘hammer-off’, ‘slide’, ‘pop’, ‘slap’, ‘strum’ and ‘Walking bass’.

The second half builds on those same compositions through the addition of bowed melody and harmony as Ivan performs pieces from Cello Moods & Broods.

Celloman is the artist name of cellist Ivan Hussey. The project began in 2001 with the release of Aquador. Since then, Celloman has released a further 8 albums and has gained a fine reputation for both their CDs and live shows with a sound that has proven to be quite unique.

Under the various line-ups, Celloman has performed extensively around the UK including at Womad, Beautiful days, and four consecutive years at Glastonbury Festival. They / he has performed in Serbia, Abu Dhabi, Spain, Zanzibar and Singapore and the International Cello Festival in Belgrade.

As a session cellist, Ivan has played on over 300 albums with artists such as Mick Jagger, Soul II Soul, Incognito, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Jay Z, The Lighthouse Family and Annie Lennox amongst others. He has toured with: Duran Duran, Gabrielle, Snow Patrol, Natacha Atlas, Smoke City, Shaun Escoffrey and many others.
