NEFESH MOUNTAIN is a great band and a joy to have met. They are extremely nice and gentle human beings. Nefesh Mountain are the pioneers of a new sound where Jewish Spirit and Soul meet with Bluegrass and Old-time musical traditions. Founders, husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff, blend their love for both of these rich traditions and have created new genre that marries these two seemingly disparate worlds. Since the recent release of their Debut album with bluegrass greats Sam Bush, Mark Schatz, Scott Vestal, Rob Ickes, and Gary Oleyar, they are winning the hearts of audiences nationwide.
It was by chance that I met them at the IBMA 2016. I am so very happy I did. That evening we caught them live. We were at the Marriott Hotel in the conference rooms where there were probably 40 plus jams going on just on that floor. The door to the conference room was open and in no time at all the room was Standing Room only. The room was filled with musicians who just couldn't walk away from this fun, inspirational, good vibes-good feeling music.
