Since their arrival on the scene in 2015, New York based Progressive Folk/Americana band Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of the formative boundary-pushing groups in roots music. The bands creators and husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff have created a world and sound all their own; blurring the lines between Bluegrass, Folk, Americana, Jazz and Blues with a masterful hand as songwriters, instrumentalists and composers alike. Their latest album “Songs For the Sparrows” is a true testament to the imagination and extraordinary grace of their musicianship, called “A master class in string music” by Rolling Stone, and “arguably some of the best bluegrass ever made” by American Songwriter. The duo wrote 13 of the albums 14 tracks, taking the listener on a deeply personal journey that embodies their own wild nature and unbridled free spirits, all while acutely addressing anti-semitism, inequality, racism, and injustices from days past to America today.
Nefesh Mountain has recorded and shared the stage with Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Bryan Sutton, John Doyle, Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers), Mark Schatz (Nickel Creek), Mike Gordon (Phish) and Tony Trischka among others. The Troubadours along with their band continue to forge new paths in unknown territory, armed with Zasloff and Lindberg’s strong, smokey, and folksy vocals and Lindberg’s soulful and masterful skills on guitars and banjo alike.
Doni and Eric are on road year-round with their baby Willow and the Nefesh Mountain Band; Alan Grubner (Violin), Thomas Cassell (Mandolin) and a variety of Bassists, drummers, and multi-instrumentalists forming a collective of musicians that help to realize their unique sound mixing Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, Blues, and Alternative Country. In 2021 they made their debut at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN and in recent years have performed various Festivals, PACs, and countless venues including Mountain Stage, Merlefest, Wintergrass, City Wineries, and many more. Through the years Nefesh Mountain has officially showcased and been a proud member of AmericanaFest, Folk Alliance, and the IBMA.
