Outpost in the Burbs presents Nefesh Mountain

(MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- Outpost in the Burbs presents Nefesh Mountain on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at the First Congregational Church, 40 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair. The New York based Progressive Americana band has been hailed as one of the formative boundary-pushing ensembles in roots music. Showtime is 8:00pm.

The band's creators and dynamic husband and wife team of Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff have created a world and sound all their own; blurring the lines between Americana, Bluegrass, Folk, Jazz and Blues with a masterful hand as songwriters, instrumentalists and composers alike. The band, declared “A Powerhouse Unit” by Rolling Stone and "Introspective lyrics and world class musicianship” by American Songwriter, takes the listener on a deeply personal journey that embodies their own wild nature and unbridled free spirits, bridging compositional prowess and prolific songwriting with deft instrumentals and jams.

Since their formation nearly a decade ago, Nefesh Mountain has been proudly open and vocal about their background and heritage as Jewish Americans, and are among the first preeminent Americana / Bluegrass bands to infuse Jewish tradition and soul into the beautifully diverse tapestry of American roots music. For them the music is wholly American, freely expressing their own identities while at the same time addressing the hate, discrimination, anti-semitism and racism that still remains at large in America and the world today.

The band has recorded and shared the stage with Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Bryan Sutton, John Doyle, Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers), Mark Schatz (Bèla Fleck, 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; a collective of Bassists, drummers, and multi-instrumentalists including Thomas Cassell, Maddie Witler, Korey Brodsky, Dylan McCarthy, Ben Plotnick, Avery Merritt, Julian Pinelli, Dan Klingsberg, Noah Fishman, Erik Alvar among others.
