The Folk Brothers for June 2, 2021: Nefesh Mountain infuses bluegrass with Jewish American spirituality

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Nefesh Mountain's Doni Zasloff and Eric Linberg say that they draw "stories that we all know from the Bible, enabling us to present a more universal song while still being true to our own heritage as Jewish Americans." Incidentally, "Nefesh" is Hebrew for "spirit" or "soul."  This morning we played a new track from them, "Where Oh Where," which features musical contributions from John Doyle, Jerry Douglas and Micheal McGoldrick.

Also today: new music from Gnoss, Bellowhead, Sarah-Jane Summers, and Juhani Silvola, plus some classic tracks from Steve Tilston and Maggie Boyle, Eric Andersen, Richard and Linda Thompson. And much more.
