About

The Mammals are Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda, and a cohort of compelling collaborators who form a touring quintet on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, organ, bass, and drums. A rough and tumble decade in the 00's forged The Mammals identity as "subversive acoustic traditionalists" or a "party band with a conscience."

Re-emerging from a hibernation period during-which the band's founders explored new songwriting terrain, The Mammals “don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” (Washington Post)

The Mammals are the finest young bluegrass/old-timey band in the country, the country-branch house band for the new weird America.
