26 THURSDAY
They call themselves a string band, but there's nothing old-time about The Mammals' take on the music of their forefathers. There's a direct family connection to the music here: Guitarist/banjoist Tao Rodriguez-Seeger is grandson of legendary folk singer, Pete Seeger. Rodriguez-Seeger, along with multi-instrumentalists Ruth Unger and Michael Merenda, take a respectful, but upbeat rock-oriented approach to traditional music. And on their latest release, Evolver they take the music for a ride that has granddaddy Pete hanging on for dear life. Six String Café, 107 Edinburgh South, Cary. 469-3667. --Grant Britt
