  • A Minneapolis-based bluegrass duo has won a Grammy for the best children's recording.
    The Star Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/YPEADQ ) the Okee Dokee Brothers won the award Sunday for their song "Can you Canoe?" It's about a canoe trip that Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing took on the Mississippi River.
    They accepted the award in pre-telecast ceremonies. Mailander thanked the Recording Academy for "recognizing indie-made children's music." Lansing says making kids music was a dream of the duo who have known each other since age 3.
    The album has sold about 10,000 copies.
    The Okee Dokee Brothers have been making kid-oriented music since 2005.
