Various Entertainment

Todd Various              Magician             Booking - £*

Since his beginnings as an American street performer, Various has decided to live in Scotland. Doing festivals in different cities all around the world is his life, and he loves it.

Ian Kendal                  Magician           Booking - £*

Ian got the magic bug early. Unlike many of his peers he never had a magic set for Christmas, but made up for that by obsessively learning everything he could on the subject. In the last two decades he has performed in almost every conceivable situation, from restaurants and bars to five star hotels and the Orient Express, from comedy clubs in California to traditional street shows in Sydney, product launches to private parties and eighteen years in the Edinburgh Fringe. Not only restricted to his native Scotland, he travels around the UK to smash the laws of physics for audiences of all types and sizes.

 

In 2009 he was awarded the Leslie P Guest Award for Excellence from the Society of American Magicians. He’s pretty sure he’s one of only two non Americans to win this award, which is presented each year for the most outstanding contribution to magic.

 

 

 

 

Emily Higgs                Musician            Booking - £*

Emily Higgs began her life in music whilst travelling the world and being influenced and inspired by the places and people she encountered.

In either setting she holds her own with a strong yet modest presence.
