Mearra-Selkie from the Sea
March 3, 2014


The ancient Celtic legend of the Selkie comes to life through a folk/rock CD, "Mearra - Selkie from the Sea" by Linda Marie Smith. Smith has presented her story through a live event with music and video-projected imagery. The CD presents the songs and storyline of Ian, a lonely fisherman who meets a Mearra, a Selkie maiden who leaves the sea to marry him. However, after 7 years, she must return to the sea. What will happen to the couple? Children who enjoy fairy tale stories would enjoy this lyrical journey, with soft, romantic acoustic music. It is 42 minutes long, which I think is a good length for a story in the car with young children.

Smith has released several albums and had two multi-media shows.

"Mearra- Selkie from the Sea" is available at and iTunes. It is $15.
