The highly anticipated tour is the first for Steve Martin and Edie 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.
Venue Description: Home to live events ranging from world music, jazz, gospel, blues, folk, show tunes, political humor, theatre, dance, the critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year, Garrison Keillor's annual holiday residency, and more. Most recently, The Dalai Lama and President Obama have graced the stage. Located in Times Square/the Theater District.
