Did you know that Steve Martin plays banjo?

Here are some more highlights from RockyGrass, mostly of the performers we watched. Anything Mike Marshall or Darol Anger touch turns to gold in my book, so we loved their performances with all of their different groups, including Psychograss, and Republic of Strings. Del McCoury Band is always an absolute favorite for me; a traditional, charming, and tight performance is always guaranteed. And when David Grisman got up there with them it just sealed the deal. I spent some time spying on a dobro player down by the river. Hot Rize’s pals Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers showed up again! Always entertaining in their goofy charm…And, by the way, did YOU know that Steve Martin played banjo? 🙂 Check this out if you didn’t catch it already: Steve Martin and Steep Canyon Rangers perform a song for atheists…

  3. Aren't Steve Martin and banjo just about synonymous? I remember seeing his episode of the Muppet Show when I was a kid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXyvCJlPgME

  4. i guess you're right joel, but now he does it professionally with a real band, not just for comedy purposes…
