Annalivia & Lissa Schneckenburger

Event Date: 
Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 8:00pm

"A band definitely on the up. Sweet harmonies... tight arrangements... divine." Fatea (UK)

"An energy that can only be described as contagious. In a word: charming." The Noise (Boston)

Annalivia is an American 'roots and branches' string-band which draws from tradition and today to create their own brand of new acoustic folk music. The members of Annalivia – Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, and newest member Bronwyn Keith-Hynes – are all masterful players and have long histories with traditional music, ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, and Old Time Appalachian music. These styles play a large role in the interpretations of their material, which can range from an inventive, quirky original fiddle tune to an innovative arrangement of a traditional song. The members of Annalivia are all seasoned musicians and have toured with the likes of Cathie Ryan, Ruth Moody, John Whelan, Aoife Clancy and Adrienne Young, among others.

Lissa Schneckenburger'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 accordion player Jeremiah McLane. Whether playing for a folk club audience or a hall full of dancers, Lissa brings to the stage enthusiasm, energy, and the bright future of New England's musical traditions.

Tickets: $20, members $18
