Crossword Genius

Small room on street accommodating one musician (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cellist

Here is my best explanation:

'musician' is the definition.

(cellist is a kind of musician)

'small room on street accommodating one' is the subsidiary indication.

'small room' becomes 'cell' (I've seen this before).

'on street' becomes 'st' (I've seen this in other clues).

'accommodating' indicates putting letters inside.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'cell'+'st'='cellst'

'cellst' placed around 'i' is 'cellist'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for cellist that I've seen before include "Musician in string section", "E.g. Casals, du Pre", "musician", "Member of orchestra", "String player", "Du Pre or Lloyd Weber", "Lloyd Webber?" and "member".)
