Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar are a Hudson Valley, USA based husband-and-wife duo setting the Americana/Indie-Folk scene ablaze, as a duo or with their five-piece band, The Mammals.

Singers, songwriters and storytellers, social and environmental activists, poets and parents, they tour with their children in tow, embodying a down-home approach to Americana.

Merenda is a prolific songwriter, who’s recent crowd-pleasing piece, Sunshiner, was nominated for an International Folk Music Award for Song of the Year.

Ungar’s unique vocal style ranges from a capella balladry to earthy soul and country. She was raised in a folk music family and learned the fiddle at a young age.

She is carrying on her family tradition, being the daughter of legendary fiddler/composer, Jay Ungar, known for his famous composition, ‘Ashokan Farewell’ used as the theme for Ken Burns’ landmark documentary, ‘The Civil War’, which she also enjoys performing.
