CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Friday, February
KEENE Nefresh Mountain - Bluegrass/Americana Band: On the heels of their Billboard Top 10 album debut, "Songs For The Sparrows," the album is the follow-up to their previous releases - "Beneath the Open Sky" (2018) and "Nefesh Mountain" (2016). "Songs For The Sparrows" was produced by band founders, husband-and-wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff. Since arriving on the scene in 2015, Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of today's formative boundary-pushing bluegrass Americana bands- among the first to give voice/openly represent Jewish American culture, tradition, values, spirituality in American roots music. With a spirit of inclusivity, they've created elegantly wayward sound melding elements from Americana and Appalachian bluegrass to Celtic folk and Eastern European music. Their open-hearted embracing of so many eclectic genres speaks to the joyful curiosity that animates their artistry and performance. Lindberg and Zasloff are the heart of this eclectic band, alongside longtime bandmate and fiddle player Alan Grubner, David Goldenberg on mandolin, and Sam Weber on bass. 8 p.m. in the Showroom.
