Well, we don’t know who the winner is yet – but we do know that Sylvie’s debut album Sylvie, produced by Howe Gelb and released on Light In The Attic Records, has made it onto the ballot for Best Folk Album for the 58th Grammy Awards!! Voting in the first round begins this week, so we’re crossing our fingers and lighting candles that she’ll make it to the next round!
Here’s some photos from a show Sylvie played with Howe and Giant Sand at the Aarhus festival last month. There was an amazine line-up onstage in the grand finale – including M Ward, Grant Lee Phillips, Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan bassist Tony Garnier, Maggie Bjorklund, Giant Sand, Howe and Sylvie and more.
Midway through the encore – a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “A Thousand Kisses Deep”, with Howe, M Ward and Sylvie on vocals, Howe led Sylvie in an impromptu tango during an accordion solo, while managing not to knock over the violin players!
