Murray the Magician – Cameron Murray
Tell us a little about what you do and why you love it?
Fearchara Fia and I are a Victorian/1930s Magic/stunt/escape theatre show called “The Firelight Show” and also proprietors of the Old Yellow Moon Carnival. Our theatrical stage show and carnival we love because it takes people into a world they forgot existed and brings magic back to their lives.
Forget rabbits and hats, we feature a mix of Russian Roulette with firearms, Dustbowl era mindreading, razorblade regurgitation, hangings, blindfold stunts and water chamber escapes that have killed world class Escape Artists.
What makes Dumfries and Galloway special to you?
This region is creative with a soul and that fits us to a tee. A space to grow…..delightfully twisted.
Are you involved in other arts and cultural activities?
We are writers of Professional Magic books and routines printed and sold worldwide.
What projects are you involved in right now?
Currently we are organising our 2016 UK tour and also the Old Yellow Moon Carnival with our 10 in 1 sideshow at festivals around the UK. We are involved in a film project to to be recorded in 2016 in Lahore, Pakistan.
Have you always been in this role – or have you/do you do anything else?
This is the sole profession of Fearchara and I.
If we asked a friend to tell us something surprising about you, what would they say?
We genuinely relax with crossbows and blindfolds.
Anything else you’d like to tell us? –
Our work is unique, carefully crafted and perfected to be world class.
