Yes, Nefesh Mountain is a bluegrass band. Yes, some of their lyrics are sung in Hebrew. No, it isn’t a gimmick or a parody. And, no, it’s not klezmer music. Now that we’ve got that straight, let’s hear Nefesh Mountain for what it really is: a soulful, euphoric, folk-flavored outpouring of hope and joy, propelled by the kind of crisp, crystalline picking that gives lyrics wings. It’s a distinctively Nefesh Mountain sound. Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg have attracted high-powered musicians on their recordings, including Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Trischka, and David Grier, aided by Nefesh Mountain’s touring band members, Alan Grubner on fiddle and Tim Kiah on bass. A dazzling picker in his own right, Eric provides lead guitar and banjo throughout, while Doni soars with some of the most melodic, incisive and soul-stirring vocals we’ve heard since Mary Travers first took the spotlight. Come out and hear the band’s inspiring new version of the Allman Brothers’ “Revival”!
