Lisa Snedeker

Entertainment Writer

Because life is too short to listen to mediocre music, Lisa Snedeker has been writing about singer/songwriters -- many of whom you may have never heard -- for more than three decades for numerous media outlets including The Associated Press and the Las Vegas Sun. She has interviewed hundreds of artists ranging from Taylor Swift to Rickey Medlocke to the Doobie Brothers to Steve Earle to Sam Bush to Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott and reviewed even more concerts and music festivals including MerleFest, Floydfest, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Front Porch Fest and Rooster Walk, among others. Now a freelance entertainment writer who calls North Carolina home, she focuses on spreading the word about music festivals and the musicians who play them in an effort to expose their offerings and talents to broader audiences.
