The Mammals


The pop-folk trio the Mammals came together in early 2001 after fiddler Ruth Ungar and guitarist Michael Merenda met in an area bar in NEW YORK. Ungar, who’s the girl of famous fiddler Jay Ungar and folksinger Lyn Hardy, briefly flirted having a profession in performing. While she and Merenda well balanced day careers, Nicaraguan-born banjo participant Tao Rodriguez-Seeger became a member of the Mammals. Between Ungar’s folk origins and Rodriguez-Seeger becoming the grandson of folk tale Pete Seeger, it had been organic for the Mammals to make a soundboard of their very own. In 2002, the Mammals self-released their debut recording, Evolver. 2 yrs later, they authorized to Signature, released Rock and roll That Babe, and added bassist Jacob Metallic and drummer Chris Merenda with their long lasting lineup. In 2006 the quintet released the record Departure.
