Music Is Serious Business – Steve Martin Touring To Promote His First All-Music Album

Though more commonly known for his comedy style and witty stage banter, Steve Martin will be hitting the road this fall to promote a more serious album featuring his bluegrass banjo music. This album, entitled “The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo,” hit stores just a few months ago, on May 19th. This album was originally released as an exclusive on January 27th before being released in stores.

This self-taught musician has played the banjo since his early teens, and is well-known for combining his comedy and music together. Though he has previously released albums featuring this blended style, “The Crow” is going to be an all-music album – the first of its kind for Martin. He also made his music debut at Nashville, TN’s famous Grand Ole Opry earlier this year, on May 30th.

Steve Martin will be kicking his tour off on September 9th in Nashville, TN with a performance at the Grammy Salute to Country Music. The tour consists of just over 20 headline performances and special appearances, and finishes up on November 3rd at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA. This month-long tour will take Martin from coast to coast in the U.S., so fans on both sides of the continent will have a chance to attend one of these landmark performances.

Martin won’t be sticking strictly to stage concerts, however. In addition to his regular performances, he’s also featured as a musical act in several of the upcoming U.S. festivals. The most notable of these performances will be at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival on October 3rd in San Francisco, California.

Whether you’re a fan of Steve Martin, bluegrass banjo music, or both, this is one tour you won’t want to miss. Anyone that’s eager to be a part of Steve Martin history by attending his first-ever all-music concert can grab their Steve Martin tickets from
