Monday, July 22, 2013 - 7:30pm
The multi-talented Grammy and Emmy Award-winning actor, comedian and musician will perform “An Evening of Music and Comedy.” Martin’s first bluegrass album, “The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo,” (2009 on Rounder Records), stayed at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Album chart for 12 weeks and was awarded the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album in 2010. The Steep Canyon Rangers’s “Nobody Knows You” recently won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. Edie Brickell, the alternative singer/songwriter, is perhaps best known for her work with the Texas rock jam band The New Bohemians. Their 1988 hit, “What I Am,” peaked at #7 on the U.S. Billboard charts.
