Sweet Land Farm
The band’s core and founders Mike Merenda & Ruth Ungar write songs to heal hearts and rouse minds. They have recorded and performed together for two decades, as the duo Mike + Ruthy and with The Mammals. They make their home in the lush Hudson River Valley of New York where they and friends host a thriving community folk festival called The Hoot. The ensemble, whether quintet or sextet (double drums), will effortlessly span the horizons of Americana, from soulfully harmonized indie-folk ballads to revved up fiddle and banjo-driven foot stompers. Dynamic range is a hallmark of any concert by The Mammals and after a forced pause this year’s shows are sure to bring extra zeal.
