The Mammals

The Mammals, led by founding members and principal songwriters Mike Merenda (guitar, banjo) and Ruth Ungar (fiddle, guitar), are a contemporary folk rock band based in Woodstock, New York. A warm-blooded party band with a conscience, the group is equally inspired by their folk predecessors and Americana peers. On their just-released new album, Nonet, The Mammals can hear the Earth calling, and they’re asking us to listen. Why is the societal pain and political-environmental challenge they address on Nonet actually so listenable? Our ears can hear it because it’s been composed with great care by two of folk- Americana’s most heartfelt topical songwriters.
