Tickets are Now on Sale for L’dor Vador!
The L’dor Vador concert returns to B’nai Tikvah on Sunday December 3rd at 4PM.
The first Jewish Bluegrass band, Nefesh Mountain will raise our spirits with an AWESOME musical performance.
Nefesh Mountain are the pioneers of a new sound where Jewish Spirit and Soul meet with Bluegrass and Old-time musical traditions. Founders, husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff, blend their love for both of these rich traditions and have created new genre that marries these two seemingly disparate worlds. They are winning the hearts of audiences nationwide.
“Nefesh” is a Hebrew word which loosely translates as the soul or animating spirt of all living things. The Mountain is a cross-cultural symbol used widely in Jewish text as well as in Bluegrass and Old-Time musical forms. “We’ve found that another commonality is that both traditions unapologetically celebrate and honor our natural world.” says Zasloff. We at B’nai Tikvah first met and loved Doni and Eric when they performed at “Rejoice” as members of “The Mama Doni Band”. Their new “grown-up” band is musically original, sophisticated, energetic and innovative.
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, & 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 this band Doni brings her unlimited spirit to the songs in her words, melodies, and music. Multi-Instrumentalist Eric Lindberg brings his background in Jazz and Classical music to the acoustic stylings of Bluegrass and Old-Time music. Eric works as a singer, guitarist, and banjoist in Nefesh Mountain and he is known widely in the Jewish and Bluegrass worlds today. Eric is constantly searching for new ways to break down the barriers between musical genre, race, and religion through the magic of music.
We elevate our words through music and Jewish music feeds our souls, we’re sparked by melodies of our hearts. We named our concert series at B’nai Tikvah “L’dor Vador, From Generation to Generation” because we understand that we represent the past and the future of the Jewish people and the music helps us express our yearnings and our aspirations. We are charged with a great mission, to make this world better. The musicians of the L’dor Vador concerts have always been an expression of the Jewish community’s growing relationships with each other through God’s love for us and our complicated love of God. Nefesh Mountain will ABSOLUELY elevate your spirit.
All are welcome, this is a concert for everyone, bring your families and friends!
