Bluegrass/Americana band Nefesh Mountain announced today the release date of their much-anticipated upcoming album. Songs For The Sparrows, on Eden Sky Records, will be available through all platforms on June 11. The record is the follow-up to their previous releases, Beneath the Open Sky (2018) and Nefesh Mountain (2016). Recorded at Nashville’s historic Sound Emporium, Songs For The Sparrows was produced by band founders, husband and wife team, Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff.
“The question is not, how do we get diversity into bluegrass, but how do we get diversity back into bluegrass?” asked Rhiannon Giddons during her keynote at the 2017 IBMA conference. The answer is Nefesh Mountain. Yes, Beneath The Open Sky is a bluegrass album. Yes, some of its lyrics are sung in Hebrew. No, it isn’t a gimmick or a parody. And, no, it’s not klezmer music.
