Lissa Schneckenburger- Thunder in My Arms Album Release
"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."
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 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 friend who was a professional violinist. Soon she was studying with renowned Maine fiddler Greg Boardman and sitting in with the Maine Country Dance Orchestra. By the time she was in high school Lissa 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. Lissa was deeply influenced by the diverse musical community that she found at fiddle camps, where she played with and learned 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. She has been performing around the US, Canada, and Europe ever since for a growing audience of enthusiastic listeners.
