Steve Martin

I had the pleasure last night of attending a sold out Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers concert that also featured singer Edie Brickell.

What a delightful evening. Martin is currently in his fifth decade of a varied and accomplished career as the program notes indicate. He’s been a stand-up comedian, an actor, and author and playwright, a composer and a phenomenal bluegrass banjo musician.

Martin is 69 years old and has reinvented himself into totally what he loves. Music and the banjo. He still does comic lines in the act, but his talent personifies in his music. His pickin’ style is both Earl Scruggs and claw hammer.

The evening amplified for me a profound truth. If you do what you love, you will be both happy and successful.

Thank you Steve Martin and all the fine musicians in The Steep Canyon Rangers group.

 I give you all six stars out of five.
