Shane Cobalt is a card expert from Canada who has been heralded by the likes of Jim Steinmeyer, the Buck Twins, Eric Anderson & Chris Kenner. Having kept his magic underground for some years, he is only now beginning to reveal his skills and is already becoming known for his work on the SWE Shift, Zarrow Shuffle and Diagonal Palm Shift.

You should know Shane Cobalt. He is one of those guys that flies just under the radar. — Jim Steinmeyer, Imagineer for Disney

In his lecture, Shane covers some of his best kept secrets, including his underground solution to the legendary 51 Faces North. Other routines are a mixture of both technically demanding and extremely easy, so, whatever your skill level, there’s something for everyone and plenty to take home and practice.

Shane is like Jimmy Hendrix with a deck of cards, you don’t make requests, you sit back and watch him work. — Elan Levitan, CMO Israel Bonds

Following a proposal and vote at the recent Sheffield Circle AGM, the lecture will be £5 to SCM members and junior magicians and £10 to non members. It will begin at 7:30 pm on Wednesday 4 May (note change of date to suit Mr Cobalt’s busy lecture schedule) at The Magic Lounge, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield, S2 5TG. Doors open at 7:00 pm fairly promptly.

Shane is one of the best sleight of hand guys in the world today. — Chris Kenner, Executive Producer to David Copperfield

Shane Cobalt is a dedicated student of magic in the truest sense of the word. He promises that everyone attending his lecture will be able to walk away with something they can do.
