Tuesday, February 27, 7:30 PM (7 doors): The Mammals, in concert!
"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
“It’s basically ‘think, dance, feel’” says Ungar of the repertoire on their forthcoming album. Songs like “Culture War” and “My Baby Drinks Water” directly recognize the rifts between people and planet. Then they whoop up a ruckus on fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass and drums as if to stomp the last shreds of worry into oblivion. And it’s no secret that some of their songs, particularly Ungar’s earthy blues and jazz-tinged numbers, will make a grown mammal cry. And that’s ok too.
Unless you’re one of those people who prefers politics and entertainment served separately, The Mammals’ holistic approach to life and music is refreshing. Their songs and stage banter are 100% down to earth, they tour as a family, and they produce a community music festival near their home in Woodstock, NY twice a year called the Hoot. After performing at the first annual Summer Hoot in 2013, Pete Seeger wrote, "Dear Mike & Ruthy — Your Hoot was one of the best song gatherings I've seen in all my 94 years."
