Mike Merenda & Ruthy Ungar are the front couple for the great contemporary stringband, “The Mammals”. Mike plays guitar and banjo, and Ruthy guitar and fiddle. Ruthy has fiddle chops right up there with her legendary Father, Jay Ungar. They play mostly original music, but maintain their traditional roots with some spirited fiddle tunes of all genres. The duo features great instrumental virtuosity, wonderful songs and stories, and an over-the-top high-energy performance.
