About

Nefesh Mountain is the place where American bluegrass and old-time music meet with Jewish heritage and tradition. Band leaders, genre-pioneers and husband/wife Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg are the heart of this eclectic offering, sharing their love for American music, their own cultural heritage and each other with audiences throughout the world. The result of this unexpected and beautiful mix is staggering; and while complete with the kind of adept string virtuosity and through-composed arrangements one would hope for from a newgrass band with influences from bluegrass, old-time, Celtic and jazz, they also play and sing songs of the heart creating music with a sense of diversity, oneness and purpose for our world today. Their newest and most adventurous recording Beneath The Open Sky was a tour de force for the band, featuring friends and bluegrass luminaries Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Trischka and David Grier, along with their own band members Alan Grubner and Tim Kiah. The album’s 11 songs collectively weave together a groundbreaking and beautiful patchwork of new American music, called “refreshingly eclectic” by Rolling Stone and “One of the finest, wholly bluegrass records one will hear in not only 2018 but as a touchstone moving forward” by No Depression magazine.
