The Mammals, starring Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda, and a cohort of compelling collaborators, 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, as the Washington Post describes them, “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”.  Their new album, Sunshiner, was recorded at their own studio Humble Abode Music in West Hurley, NY with co-producer Adam Armstrong.
