Mearra: Selkie from the Sea @ Old Town School of Music

Experience Linda Marie Smith’s latest live music show, “Mearra – Selkie From the Sea” Sunday, December 7th at 3pm, at the famed Old Town School of Music in Chicago. This family-friendly performance features an original adaptation of a classic Celtic tale told with original songs and performed with a eight piece ensemble, playing along to original projections directed by Kai Harding filmmaker Chris Olsen, and animated by Catherine and Sarah Satrun.

In this re-imagined story, Mearra, a mythical seal, makes use of her magical ability to transform into a human being, marries Ian, a lonely fisherman and eventually starts a family; knowing all the while she must inevitably return to the sea as a seal, or perish. The characters experience love, loss and transformation while emotionally charged music, beautiful stage lighting and evocative projected imagery all come together to make for an unforgettable multi-media concert experience.
