"Women of Heart and Mind": Join Linda Marie Smith, Christina Trulio, and Sue Fink, three Women of Heart and Mind, for an ecclectic and soulful evening! Wishbone North (3300 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago) offers "southern reconstruction dining" -- so come earlier to the back room with the stage, enjoy a scrumptious meal, and listen to our special "in the round" show. (very likely a Joni tune or two as well!)
Experience a live music show unlike any other with Linda Marie Smith's latest production, "Mearra - Selkie From the Sea.” This family-friendly performance features Smith's adaptation of a classic Celtic tale told with original songs and performed with a six piece orchestra playing along to projected animation. 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.
Linda Marie Smith presents THE TRIUMPH OF ARTEMISIA. A stunning concert/multimedia experience which tells the compelling story of 17th century Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi through contemporary original music and beautiful video projection of Artemisia's paintings.
The Linda Marie Smith trio with Robert Arendt and Eugenia Elliott will present an enchanting evening of art and song, discover Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652), the first recognized female painter in the world of post-Renaissance art. Fascinated by her life, Tragedy to Triumph-The Story of Artemisia is Linda Marie Smith’s first multimedia concert experience. The artist's life, aspirations and masterpieces are captured through music, haunting vocalized harmonies and visual art projections. Smith, a Chicago-based singer/ songwriter, performs this inspirational show in a trio format with piano, guitar, bass, flute, and vocals, while projecting images of Artemisia's paintings.
