MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis-based bluegrass duo has won a Grammy for the best children's recording.

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.

Mailander graduated from St. John's University in 2005.

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.
