About


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.

New Album Info


Refreshingly eclectic. Like a blanket passed down as a family heirloom, the results are warm and comfortable, and their 21st century approach never overshadows those old-world traditions

A highly-effective blend of these two spheres… only rarely have we heard a prominent Jewish counterpoint to the gospel music that has been a part of bluegrass since Bill Monroe’s earliest recordings.”

Hanukkah Tribute To Woody Guthrie

This holiday season we are so excited to release this pairing of songs written by the great Okie troubadour, Woody Guthrie. Woody moved to Coney Island in 1942 and spent much of his time learning from and collaborating with his Jewish mother in law and yiddish poet Aliza Greenblatt. He identified with the stories and hardships of the Jewish people inspiring him to write these unique and powerful poems and songs. Though these works and Jewish writings were little known at the time, their rediscovery by his daughter Nora Guthrie paints a fuller picture of Woody as a writer, social activist, and humanitarian.
