Steve Martin is a funny guy (and a wild and crazy guy), but he's also an accomplished musician, having played banjo since he was 17 years old. Friday he'll be at the Palace Theatre to play some tunes with his friend and collaborator Edie Brickell and her band the Steep Canyon Rangers. There's no comedy involved, but you won't even mind because Martin is really accomplished as a serious banjo player. He's like the Bo Jackson of comedy and bluegrass.
