About Lisa Snedeker 

Life is too short to listen to mediocre music. That’s why Lisa Snedeker has been writing about performers — many of whom you may have never heard — for more than three decades for numerous media outlets including The Associated Press. She has interviewed hundreds of artists ranging from Taylor Swift to Rickey Medlocke to Steve Earle to Sam Bush and reviewed even more concerts and music festivals including MerleFest, Floydfest, the Charlie Poole Festival, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Front Porch Fest and Rooster Walk. Now a freelance entertainment writer who calls Madison, N.C., home, she focuses on area music festivals and musicians in an effort to expose their offerings and talents to broader audiences.
