Steve Martin, Steep Canyon Rangers, Edie brickell collagePerforming selections from their new album Love Has Come for You, releasing on April 23, 2013, these new musical partners combine Martin's expressive five-string banjo work with Brickell's heart-tugging vocals and detail-rich lyrics. Joining this dynamic duo are the esteemed bluegrass combo, the Steep Canyon Rangers, with whom Martin has recorded and toured extensively.

Steve is currently in the fifth decade of a uniquely varied and accomplished career in which he's excelled as a comedian, actor, author and playwright, and Grammy-winning banjoist and composer. His fellow Texas native Edie Brickell initially burst onto the national scene in the late 1980s fronting the New Bohemians, and has since solidified her reputation as a uniquely compelling singer and songwriter.

The Martin-Brickell album Love Has Come for You was produced by studio legend Peter Asher (James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Linda Ronstadt) and features notable players including rising-star bassist Esperanza Spalding, 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 with and has toured extensively.

Tickets and additional information may be found on the Peace Center website.
