Founded by the grandson of folk icon Pete Seeger, Tao Rodríguez-Seeger, and based in the Hudson Valley of New York, the Mammals is a band that harks back to the best folk generations of the past while crafting a sound that’s fresh and lively. Later this year, the Mammals will release their new LP, Sunshiner, and before the record hits shelves, they’re touring internationally to support its production. The band stops in the North Bay on that tour and performs their high-octane brand of bluegrass on Friday, March 2, at Sebastopol Community Center, 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 8:30pm. $17–$22. 707.823.1511.
