About the Performers
The multi award winning singer, songwriter and author Doni Zasloff is a beloved presence on stage throughout the country.

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.
Nefesh Mountain was featured in Billboard Magazine, and their song "The Narrow Bridge" was voted Top Ten Country Songs of the Week on Rolling Stone. Here is what the press is saying about Nefesh Mountain:
