      The music was wonderful! I especially loved the stories in between, and recognizing many of the tunes from previous recordings. I had a little trouble hearing even with my volume turned all the way up; could just be my system but if there's a way to boost the sound a little more on input that would be a huge help. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful talents with all of us!

      What was your favorite part of the performance? The music was great. And It was a fun, new medium for me; I could invite friends to see the performance with me, without having to get them all to go 'out'. Yes, wish you had played for another hour! Thanks for creating beautiful music and good times.

“Schneckenburger’s playing is… quietly virtuosic…her voice is pure and clear, full of simple emotion…”
All Music Guide

“World class fiddler …. far from just offering one dance tune after another, simple settings allow the true beauty of the music to shine through.”
Sing Out

The traditional music of New England can be as warm and comforting as a winter fire or as potent and exhilarating as a summer thunderstorm. Fiddler and singer Lissa Schneckenburger is a master of both moods, a winsome, sweet-voiced singer who brings new life to old ballads and a skillful, dynamic fiddler who captures the driving rhythm and carefree joy of dance tunes old and new.

Raised in a small town in Maine and now living in Vermont, Lissa grew up with music. She began playing fiddle at the age of six, inspired by her mother's interest in folk music and a family friend who was a professional violinist. Soon she was studying with influential Maine fiddler Greg Boardman and sitting in with the Maine Country Dance Orchestra. By the time she was in high school she was playing concerts on her own, specializing in the sprightly New England dance tunes that combine influences from the British Isles and Quebec with homegrown twists that have been evolving since Colonial days. Another of her major influences was the diverse musical community that she found at fiddle camps, where she had a chance to play with and learn from a wide variety of musicians including noted Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser. In 2001 she graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in contemporary improvisation, and since then has been performing around the US and internationally for a growing audience of enthusiastic listeners. She has recorded eight CDs, (five solo and three with various groups).

Lissa's fiddling is uplifting and lively, and her singing is gentle and evocative. Both in concert and in the studio she is regularly accompanied by some of New England's best musicians, including guitarist Bethany Waickman and piano accordion player Jeremiah McLane.

Recently she has turned over a new leaf with "Covers", a recording released in June 2013, which as the name suggests, is a mix of reinterpreted pop songs from the 1950s to today. Co produced with Aoife O'Donovan (of Crooked Still and The Goat Rodeo Sessions), Lissa's sixth solo album reinterprets beloved classics by artists like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Nelly, Weezer, The Magnetic Fields, Dire Straits, and many more. Lissa explained, "To me, folk music is anything that creates a feeling of community. Music that people want to sing along to, dance to, fall in love to…. music that brings people together. These songs are part of all of us, and it's an honor to have had the chance to record them".

Whether playing interpretations of music old or new, Lissa brings to the stage enthusiasm, energy, and the bright future of New England’s musical traditions.
