Best of the Best for 2016 and now airing nationally on PBS, Linda Marie Smith’s Celtic fairytale concert experience MEARRA~SELKIE FROM THE SEA" is a one-of-a-kind music/multimedia extravaganza and a timeless, family friendly love story. Smith performs her original music with a rich musical ensemble accompanied by projected hand-drawn animated images which tells the story about a mythical mermaid-like creature, a seal who has the mysterious ability to shed it's skin and transform into a human being. The story begins with Mearra, a Selkie maiden who falls in love with Ian, a lonely fisherman. Bidding farewell to her life in the sea, she marries and starts a family. Seven years later, the sea inexorably calls for Mearra's return in this bittersweet tale of love, loss and transformation. Smith has performed in over 60 libraries in Illinois and is always delighted to share her music with the appreciative audiences of library patrons and staff. MEARRA~SELKIE FROM THE SEA is a wonderful introduction into the world of Celtic folklore. The month of March and the winter holiday season are very popular booking times for this program as well as a watery/full moon themed celebratory piece for the summer solstice in June.
