Those frequenting downtown Moscow may have been pleasantly surprised recently to hear notes from an electric cello reverberating through the streets.

The man behind those melodies is 31-year-old Martin Watkinson of Ashland, Ore., a lifelong cello player and musician.

Most days — weather permitting — the musician can be found brightening the days of others by shredding on his electric cello in front of the Moscow Food Co-op.
