AUSTIN CITY LIMITS
Aired Saturday, 11/6/2010 at 11:30 p.m. on CPTV (Check Listings)
Fans of Austin City Limits are certainly not strangers to bluegrass. But when it's played by author/actor/comedian Steve Martin, the tunes may sound just a little different. While Waco native Martin has long used a banjo in his comedic stage act, he's been serious about playing since collaborating with Earl Scruggs in 2001. Martin will be showcasing music from his latest album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, the 2009 Grammy winner for Best Bluegrass Album, produced by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s John McEuen. Catch Martin in Studio 6A before he heads to Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo with his band the Steep Canyon Rangers. Please join us for an evening of bluegrass like you've never heard it before.
