Steve Martin :: Hardly Strictly '09 :: by Dave Vann
Following his successful tour last year in support of his Grammy award-winning album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, Steve Martin, once again joined by the award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers, will embark on a 2010 music tour beginning on April 19th in Detroit, which includes stops at Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo, and is expected to continue into October.

"I am very excited to begin my banjo tour with the Steep Canyon Rangers," commented Martin. "It has been a long time dream of mine to travel around the country with a bunch of guys."

The Crow spent 30 weeks atop the Billboard Bluegrass Album charts which made it the #1 Bluegrass Album for 2009 and it's currently still #2 after 52 weeks on the chart. The Crow won the "Best Bluegrass Album" GrammyAward at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards in January, bringing Martin's total Grammy wins to four. An album 45 years in the making, Martin wrote or arranged and performed all of the songs on The Crow, which features vocal appearances by Mary Black, Vince Gill, Tim O'Brien, Dolly Parton and instrumental guest spots by Earl Scruggs, John McEuen (CD producer), Stuart Duncan, Jerry Douglas, Pete Wernick and Tony Trischka.
