An Evening Of Music & Comedy With Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Rangers Featuring Edie Brickell

1363795101_thumbCome to the Stamford Center for the Arts tonight for a wonderful event with famous actor Steve Martin!

Steve Martin is currently in the fifth decade of a uniquely varied and accomplished career in which he’s excelled as a comedian, actor, author and playwright, and as a Grammy-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer. His fellow Texas native Edie Brickell initially burst onto the national scene in the late 1980s fronting the New Bohemians, and has since carved out an iconoclastic solo career that’s solidified her reputation as a uniquely compelling singer and a songwriter of rare insight.

The results of the pair’s unconventional co-writing method are both organic and inspired, combining the gentle yet feisty humanity of Brickell’s vocals with the effortless economy of Martin’s banjo work, whose understated subtlety contrasts the fleet-fingered picking he’s employed on his acclaimed bluegrass recordings.
