Stone Soup – explosions, sleight of hand, and unsuitable clothing

posted in: Up Coming Performances | 0

I often get asked if I do anything else, than close-up magic, well the answer is yes I do.  In fact when I was younger I used to perform magic on stage to 100-200 people.  But more recently, I have provided a Cabaret Magic Show at the Edinburgh Fringe (2014, 2015 & 2016), called ‘The Magic of Jim’.

Although, I love performing close-up magic, it’s good to do some new material.  So I was delighted to be invited back to perform at Stone Soup.  Which is taking place THIS Sunday, 5th November, from 7.30pm, at Leith Depot (138 Leith Walk).

I am planning on showing some brand new material, which I have begun learning for my next Edinburgh Fringe show.  So if you want to see some completely new magic, do come along.

But I am just one of three acts – there is also davesnewbike and The Tartan Gussets.  The last Stone Soup I was at was loads of fun, so I would highly recommend coming along.  Check out more information about Daves New Bike and The Tartan Gussetts:


davesnewbike is a Scottish band creating original, rootsy pop for grown-ups.  Their second album ‘The Tin Can and the Flood’ is available as a CD, to stream or download on their own Fogo Records imprint

“genuinelyone of the worst names for a band I’ve ever heard” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 6 Music (although he really loved the album!).  Album available at Stone Soup.


The Tartan Gussets

Consisting of Sheila McWhirter on lead vocals and Vicki Ridley on guitar and vocals, the Tartan Gussets formed as a duo at Edinburgh’s Adult Learning Project 25 years ago, and built up their act performing at the Annual Women’s Gathering and Fringe events throughout the late 90’s.

Firmly rooted in folk and rock music with occasional bluesy vibes, expect a smattering of old and new songs and a harmonious take on some classics.  What do we really really want? – the Tartan Gussets…..
