New England fiddler and folk singer Lissa Schneckenburger grew up in Maine as an active member of the folk music and dance community, where she cut her teeth as a musician at a very young age. In 2001, she graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While embracing a diverse palette of musical influences, she still stays true to her New England roots.

Her television appearances include the PBS specials "A Taste of Chanukah" and "Taste of Passover" filmed in New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall.
