Hardly Strictly Bluegrass '09: Steve Martin, Neko Case, and more

Posted By on Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 3:58 PM


Steve Martin is a wild and crazy guy...who happens to dig bluegrass. The above video is from a performance he had last September with The Steep Canyon Rangers in that band's home state of North Carolina, with the white-haired comedian plucking away on the banjo. Martin will bring these boys and their banjos to Golden Gate Park the weekend of Oct. 2-4 when the group headlines this year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass fest. Also on deck to perform: Neko Case, Doc Watson, Okkervil River, Earl Scruggs, Gillian Welch, John Prine, Old 97s, Marianne Faithful, Mavis Staples, Aimee Man, Billy Bragg, and lots more
