The music of Linda Marie Smith is romantic, soulful, earthy and mystical; her lyrics and melodies weave colorful stories of intriguing people and curious places. Her latest album, “Mearra-Selkie From The Sea” is about the Celtic myth of the Selkie, a mythical seal with the mysterious ability to shed it's skin and transform into a human being. The music from this album supports a live multimedia concert experience which incorporates richly orchestrated music and vocals, animated moving illustrations created by Catherine and Sarah Satrun, evocative lighting and narration bringing the beautiful tale of Mearra to life.
