The Making of a "Country Conjurer"
Throughout the years, Erick Hershey has performed in a number of styles, beginning in classical magic. After relocating near his ancestral home in beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, he themed his magic to reflect his country roots. ‘Country Conjuring’ was born, showcasing the laid-back fun of country living. Billed as “back-porch magic”, the act features magic designed to take the audience out of the world of reality, and into the world of illusion. He performs bright, visual magic for all ages, with wide-eyed astonishment and laughter the key ingredients.
Erick has performed professionally for over 30 years, and is an active member of the Society of American Magicians, the world’s oldest magic organization. His performances vary from stage shows, to business promotions, to “strolling” event magic, but his specialty is children’s magic. Erick’s shows are upbeat, fun, lighthearted events, and he makes sure that even his adult shows are family-friendly.
He has performed in numerous venues from coast-to-coast, throughout the United States. His travels have also taken him through the United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe, including a personal invitation to tour the prestigious Magic Circle in London, England.
Calling upon his background as a professional scenic sculptor and carpenter, Erick designs and builds many of his one-of-a-kind tricks himself, and is constantly designing new illusions.
More than anything, Erick Hershey truly loves performing - taking pride in the art of Illusion, and finding joy in the smiles and laughter of audiences everywhere. Look for him at an event near you!
