Bon Iver, the Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based band, led by Justin Vernon, won best new artist at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. The group also won for best alternative recording of the year.
Bon Iver is not new to people who listen to MPR's sister station, The Current. Vernon and his bandmates performed at Rock the Garden back in 2008. Andrea Swensson writes for the Local Current blog and talks with Cathy Wurzer about Bon Iver's latest success.
