Steve Martin, one of the most diversified performers in the motion picture industry today, has been successful as a writer of and performer in some of the most popular movies of recent film history. Martin released his second full length bluegrass album Rare Bird Alert on March 15, 2011, joined by the Steep Canyon Rangers, who toured extensively with Martin over the last year. The album featured 13 new Martin-penned tracks, including a live version of “King Tut,” and was produced by Tony Trishka. Paul McCartney and The Dixie Chicks make special guest vocal appearances on the album. Steve Martin’s 2009 banjo album, The Crow / New Songs For The Five-String Banjo, won a Grammy in 2010 for Best Bluegrass Album.
Audiences of Martin’s live show can expect to hear not only first-class bluegrass music, but some of the artist’s comedy as well, sprinkled in throughout the performance.
