October 28, 2009 – Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers Perform at the Walt Disney Concert Hall
“The actor’s considerable banjo-playing skills were in the spotlight, but his comedic talents pop in as well before a delighted near-capacity audience.”
On October 28, 2009, Disney Legend, songwriter, and comedian Steve Martin performed with the Steep Canyon Rangers at a sold-out show at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Martin was promoting his new album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, which had reached the top of the Bluegrass Album charts. Martin, straddling the line between stand-up routine and banjo concert, entertained the crowd with his own compositions and a few bluegrass standards. Martin was also joined by fellow banjo player and songwriter Abigail Washburn for a 40-minute set.
