Nefesh Mountain is the place where Bluegrass and Old-Time music meet with Jewish heritage and tradition. Husband and Wife team Eric Lindberg & Doni Zasloff are the pioneers of this new blend of spiritual American music and bring their unique knowledge and passion for these beautiful worlds to the fore with songs in English and Hebrew alike. Their music infuses American Bluegrass and Appalachian sounds with Jewish spirituality and prayers. In the past few years they have released two albums including their self titled “Nefesh Mountain” and “Beneath the Open Sky” as well as a compilation of their music in partnership with PJ Library titled “Songs From the Mountain.”
The multi award winning singer, songwriter and author Doni Zasloff is a beloved presence on stage throughout the country and is regarded as one of the most influential Jewish Performers in the twenty-first century. Her unique backgrounds in singing, musical theatre and Judaism make her one of the most in demand and unique artists today, and she brings these multi-faceted talents directly to Nefesh Mountain. With Nefesh Mountain Doni continues to enchant audiences all over the world with her voice and unlimited spirit and her words, melodies, and music.
Multi-Instrumentalist Eric Lindberg brings his Jazz and Classical background to the acoustic forms of Bluegrass and Old-Time music. After graduating with honors from Mason Gross School Of The Arts with a degree in Jazz performance he has toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. His influential work as a composer, singer, guitarist, and banjoist with his wife Doni Zasloff in Nefesh Mountain are known widely in the Jewish and Bluegrass worlds today.
