Klezmatics win Grammy!!!!

Woody Guthrie-style naive art with bad letteringI don't watch TV, of course, but I was just taking a look over at Rokhl Kafrissen's "Rootless Cosmopolitan and discovered that the Klezmatics did, indeed, win a grammy!

I'm sorry that the Grammy is "only" for a crossover Americana album, but I am pleased as punch—more than pleased—that a group I admire so much has gotten at least some recognition from the general music establishment.

And, I gotta say, it may be "only" a crossover Americana album, but the band fully deserves the recognition for Woody Guthrie's Wonder Wheel CD, and the album rocks! Woody would be very happy, as would his mother in law, Aliza Greenblatt.
