Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg have dedicated this December’s Nefesh Mountain tour to Love & Light. Merging Jewish folk tradition and southern American mountain music, they broaden the concept of Americana. You can stream their show this Saturday night. Click photo for sample.
Greetings – Thank you for taking a moment to read this weekly update from Caffe Lena. I’m sure you have no shortage of emails to read. I want this virtual visit to remind you of what it feels like to come in person to a place where tables are shared, kindness reigns, and the music is superb.
Tuesday’s Rochmon Record Club will be devoted to honoring all those musicians who went on to the angel choir in 2023. I know it will be a tender, heartfelt night of great songs. The Lost Radio Rounders (Friday) will be full of nostalgia, as well. They specialize in lots of laughter and songs of long ago, including some you’ll definitely sing along on. Nefesh Mountain (Saturday) has sold out in-person, but you can stream the show. Their Jewish-American roots music brings love and light during a time of heartbreak for all those affected by the war in Gaza–which is all of us.
Nearly every night, Caffe Lena is a place for people of goodwill to gather. The Caffe is what it is because of our volunteers, our members, our artists and our audience. Thank you for lending your support during our Annual Fund Drive, and all year long.
Rochmon’s annual Year End Retrospective Listening Party celebrates the lives of musicians who left the planet this year. The show features 14+ songs from a wide variety of artists including Jeff Beck, David Crosby, Burt Bacharach, Gordon Lightfoot, Tina Turner, Jimmy Buffett, Robbie Robertson, Sinéad O’Connor and, unfortunately, many others.
Indie-folk/rock serving up delicious fuzzy-melodic grooves. Saratoga’s own Ben Crandall (guitar/vocals), Bryce North (guitar/vocals), Dylan Jaques (keys), Jordon Gyarmathy (bass) and Henry McCabe (drums) play lush, hook-filled songs and create a family reunion vibe.
The trio of Paul Jossman and Michael Eck – both members of the Capital Region Thomas Edison Music Hall of Fame – along with Tom Lindsay, entertain and inform with old songs and the fascinating stories behind them. This holiday season they invite you to step back in time and sing along with a program guaranteed to set your bells jingling!

This NYC-based Progressive Americana band fronted by husband and wife Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff has created a style all their own. Nefesh Mountain infuses the sounds of Southern mountain music and bluegrass with Jewish tradition, creating a beautiful new tapestry of American sound. In 2021 they made their debut at The Grand Ole Opry and have played NPR’s Mountain Stage and most of the top bluegrass festivals.
