Sunday, February 18- The Mammals

A high-octane Americana quintet from New York’s storied Hudson Valley, The Mammals carry on the work of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie with a deep original repertoire and signature “trad is rad” sound.

“ Some of the best songwriting of their generation.”  LA Weekly

“A string band at the core, The Mammals augment their sound with electric guitar and drums to create a collectively harmonized howl as thrilling and rocking as any band currently subverting folk traditions !!” No Depression

Founded in 2001 by Seeger’s grandson, Tao, second generation fiddler / singer, Ruthy Ungar and banjo / guitar songsmith, Mike Merenda, the Mammals reemerged in 2017  stronger than ever.

“The Mammals don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating ole-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.”        The Washington Post
