Fiddler Lissa Schneckenburger's latest recording Different Game, released in March 2001, pulls traditional fiddle repertoire from Irish, Scottish, French Canadian, and contemporary folk music. Schneckenburger is backed by a group of fabulous traditional Irish, and contradance musicians from the New England area on guitar, piano, bass, bodhran, and mandolin. Different Game includes several vocal numbers, heartfelt waltzes, and upbeat dance tunes.

Different Game is a sequel to Schneckenburger's first CD The Mad Hatter, released in 1997 (Outer Green Records). The Mad Hatter has been aired on National Public Radio's international Celtic show, The Thistle & Shamrock, and has been reviewed in publications in the United States and Europe.

Schneckenburger has been featured in countless radio and television broadcasts, including a solo on National Public Television's A Taste of Chanukah filmed in New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, a live performance on WBZ Boston, and annual features on Maine Public Radio's Live at 11. Lissa Schneckenburger has opened for artists such as Alasdair Fraser, Skyedance, and Judy Collins.

As well as having a blossoming solo career, Lissa is one of the founding members of the acoustic fiddle band, Halali, from Boston, and is also the featured violinist with the Celtic rock group, Mad Pudding, from Vancouver, BC. As a member of these ensembles, Lissa has played shows throughout the US, Canada, UK, and the Netherlands.
