On the heels of her successful original multi-media music show "The Triumph of Artemisia", Linda Marie Smith presents another magical performance. "Mearra - Selkie From the Sea" brings together original songs, rich orchestrations and evocative stage imagery, for a one of a kind live music performance. The family friendly show is inspired by the timeless celtic myth of the selkie; a unique seal creature with the ability to transform into a human. In Smith's mystical story the selkie Mearra secretly falls in love with a lonely fisherman and transforms into a human to be with him and have a family together. Selkie tradition however calls for her ultimate return to the sea again as a seal leaving all of their lives forever changed in this bittersweet tale of love, loss and transformation.
Mearra ~ Selkie From the Sea will be presented at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago on Sunday, December 7th at 3pm.
