PITTSBURGH – Renowned actor, comedian, author and musician Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell, will perform a bluegrass music concert at Heinz Hall in July, as part of a national tour.
The concert will be at 7:30 p.m., Monday, July 1. Tickets, ranging from $45 to $150, go on sale at 9 a.m., Friday, Feb. 1. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Heinz Hall box office at 412.392.4900, or visiting www.pittsburghsymphony.org. This is not a stand-up comedy show. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will not be performing at this event.
The North American tour of Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell, kicks off May 22 at Fort Myers, Fla. The highly anticipated tour is the first for Martin and Brickell, who will perform songs from their album Love Has Come for You. The remarkable new collaboration is set for release on April 23 on Rounder Records.
Love Has Come for You features 13 eloquently rootsy compositions that combine Martin’s inventive five-string banjo work with Brickell’s distinctive vocals and vivid, detail-rich lyrics. The album was produced by legendary producer Peter Asher (James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Linda Ronstadt) and features notable players, including rising-star Esperanza Spalding on bass, veteran studio guitarist Waddy Wachtel, and Nickel Creek alumni Sara and Sean Watkins. The album also features the esteemed bluegrass combo the Steep Canyon Rangers with whom Martin recorded his latest Grammy-nominated album, Rare Bird Alert.
In a genre that prizes musicianship above all else, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers have risen to national prominence with their dynamic stage show. The tour will showcase new material performed by Martin and Brickell, along with the unique hybrid of bluegrass and comedy that Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers have been delighting audiences with at their sold-out, critically acclaimed shows.
The Pittsburgh concert is presented by Drusky Entertainment (www.druskyentertainment.com) and Kirschner Concerts (www.kconcerts.com).
