    The Guggenheim Grotto, an alternative folk rock Irish duo featuring Kevin May (vocals, keyboard) and Mick Lynch (vocals, guitar, ukulele, stompboard), first charmed audiences on the Dublin songwriter circuit in 2004. Drawing bits of inspiration from such diverse sources as Leonard Cohen, Coldplay, and The Beatles, among others, TGG create their own unique sound, blending thoughtful, seasoned lyrics with gorgeous jazz-inflected alt-folk harmonies. In 2011, TGG left Ireland and settled in Brooklyn, where they have been collaborating with talented artists of this musical generation. And, in the past few years touring Ireland and the States, they have cultivated such a loyal and supportive fan base, the songs chosen for their fourth album, This Time Round, were voted on by their fans! A Guggenheim Grotto live show never disappoints, and is sure to offer up fresh spins on old favorites as well as bright new songs!
