I am thrilled and honored to report that our dear friend Lorin Sklamberg, lead singer of The Klezmatics, won a Grammy Award today!!!

Well, the whole band did, really. It’s for best world beat album. That might not be the exact name of the category, but I don’t think today’s winners have been posted on the Grammy site yet, and I’m too excited to bother to dig around to find it.

Anyway, it’s incredibly cool and not at all surprising for an immensely talented and spirited band. They work so hard, travel around the world, and take on super cool projects with other amazing musicians. Lorin even played at our wedding! (I’m sure that was an all-time career high for him…)

I spoke to Lorin briefly this afternoon and he was utterly thrilled and suprised by the win. They were off to the second part of the award ceremony–the televised portion–which Mark told me The Police are playing at. (Wait, they’re not still together, are they?)

I hope that Lorin is having the time of his life tonight. And I can only assume that by now his mother, Libby, has imploded with pride.
