Steve Martin (2010 Season)

Fri, Oct 8, 2010 @ 8:00 PM, The Granada Theatre

Steve Martin Performing with the Steep Canyon Rangers

An Evening of Bluegrass and Banjo

“Steve Martin [is] a first-rate bluegrass artist…The sextet of Martin and the hirsute, lightning-fingered Steep Canyon Rangers went through a boisterous, rollicking, frolicking set that was transcendent…Martin, throughout, was polished, poised, and hilarious.” Vanity Fair

Legendary comedian Steve Martin has proven equally adept as an actor, screenwriter, playwright, novelist, and now banjo player and composer. His first all-music release, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo (featuring pals Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Earl Scruggs, and others), won the 2010 Grammy® Award for Best Bluegrass Album and spent 31 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard bluegrass chart. One of America’s most beloved performers, Martin will be joined in an unforgettable evening of laughter and music by North Carolina bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers.




Private post-event reception with the artists for Producers Circle Members.
