The Barn hosts a beautiful night of music with The Mammals — Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda and friends, a cohort of compelling collaborators who form a touring quintet on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, organ, bass and drums. Over the past 20 years they have quietly composed a canon of original songs that both reflect our culture and offer a vision of how the world might yet be.

“These days we sing about what we’re for over what we’re against,” says singer/songwriter, Mike Merenda, and what they’re for is “nothing short of sublime” according to (Americana UK).

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 in 2017 from a hibernation period during-which the band’s founders explored new songwriting terrain, 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). Their latest album, Nonet, “marshalls the defiant spirit needed to heal a damaged world” (No Depression).

In 2023 they’ll be releasing a series of singles recorded at their own Humble Abode Music, as well as issuing bonus material from 2020’s, Nonet.

You can also catch The Mammals semi-annually at The Hoot, a folk festival they curate and produce at The Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, N.Y.

The Egremeont Barn offers a performance venue in a tavern atmosphere with a wood fire and comfortable chairs around the stage and a pub menu for dinner.
