Upcoming Show: The Mammals – 2.8.19

“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. Identifying as “subversive acoustic traditionalists” or a “party band with a conscience,” The Mammals re-emerged 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
