Marsh Music Continues

Marsh Music Continues New England fiddler and folk singer Lissa Schneckenburger will perform locally at the Wetlands Institute’s Marsh Music program, Friday, May 13.

Schneckenburger grew up in Maine and is an active member of the folk music and contradance community where she cut her teeth as a musician at a very young age. While embracing a diverse pallet of musical influences she still stays true to her New England roots. Her newest release, on her own label Footprint Records, shows just that. It’s a rich and cohesive mix of traditional and original material brought together by the warm tones of her fiddle and sweet vocals throughout. Add to that the energetic buzz of a top-notch band and it’s a match made in heaven. Acoustic guitar, double bass, mandolin, viola, cello, and percussion all add to the traditional fiddle tunes and ballads.

Schneckenburger already has two solo albums under her belt - Different Game in 2001, and The Mad Hatter in 1997. She has played all over the world as a fiddler and vocalist, including appearances in Russia, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, and the United States. She has opened for artists such as Alasdair Fraser, Skyedance, Karen Casey, Kate Campbell, and Judy Collins. She has been featured in countless radio broadcasts including Bound For Glory broadcast from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, KPIG radio in Watsonville CA, WBZ Boston, and annual features on Maine Public Radio’s Live at 11. Her television appearances include the PBS specials “A Taste of Chanukah” and “A Taste of Passover” filmed in New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall.

All Marsh Music shows begin at 8 p.m. and are BYOB. Tickets are available at the door or in advance and cost $8 for members, $10 for nonmembers with children under 12, $4 and $5. For more information call the Wetlands Institute, 609-368-1211. Phil Roy will perform at Marsh Music on June 10.
