Steve Martin Performs at Fontanel

“It’s always been a dream of mine to play banjo in Whites Creek, Tennessee,” said Steve Martin during his performance at The Woods at Fontanel near Nashville on Friday evening (May 27). Martin joined the Steep Canyon Rangers for a two-hour concert, playing songs from his new album, Rare Bird Alert. He also performed “Daddy Played the Banjo” and “Wally on the Run” from his 2009 Grammy-winning bluegrass album, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. Martin will be touring this summer with the Steep Canyon Rangers.
