Fiddler and Folk Singer
Lissa hails from Maine and is currently living in Vermont. She started the fiddle at the age of six thanks to her mother's interest in folk music. Lissa is able to evoke the many nuances of the tradition from rousing trad to the delicacy of a romantic song.
Lissa "captures the driving rhythm and joy of dance tunes old and new.” (Sing Out)
The influence of the traditional music of New England along with influences from the UK and Ireland can be seen in her playing which she performs throughout Canada, the USA and Europe. Lissa has performed with many groups recording with three of them as well as producing six solo CDs.
