Listen: Nefesh Mountain Has The Mountain Stage Song Of The Week

Nefesh Mountain, Live on Mountain Stage

Mountain Stage
Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff founded the group Nefesh Mountain. Hear them this weekend on "Mountain Stage."

This weekend on Mountain Stage, we revisit our 38th anniversary show from 2021. Host Kathy Mattea welcomes Joshua Radin, Stephen Kellogg, Nefesh Mountain and Mink’s Miracle Medicine. Join the celebration on this week’s episode starting March 4 on Mountain Stage affiliate stations.

Since their arrival on the scene in 2015, Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of today’s formative boundary pushing Bluegrass/Americana bands. They’re among the first to truly give voice and openly represent Jewish American culture, tradition, values and spirituality in the world of American roots music.

On this week’s broadcast, Nefesh Mountain performed songs from their critically acclaimed latest, Songs of the Sparrow, and our Song of the Week, the band’s “A Mighty Roar,” which appears on their album Beneath The Open Sky.

Tune in this weekend to hear more from Nefesh Mountain, plus singer-songwriter Joshua Radin, accompanied by vocalist Allie Moss and guitarist Danny Black, a special solo set from Stephen Kellogg, and Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia-based rootsy alt-folk group Mink’s Miracle Medicine.

This show also features a special performance from our host Kathy Mattea, who performs her version of "Turn Off The News (Build A Garden)." The song was written by Lukas Nelson and Kathy released it as a single earlier this year.

Join us on these stations starting this Friday, Dec. 23, and thank you for making Mountain Stage a part of your holiday weekend.
