steve martin & his banjo

On Friday night me and Pat went to see Steve Martin play his banjo at the amphitheater. Yes, that Steve Martin, the actor/comedian. 

"Just another Hollywood dilettante hitching a ride on the bluegrass gravy train..."

It was a really good show, definitely entertaining and weird to see that white hair in person. The show was a mix of him playing solo, or with his band The Steep Canyon Rangers, and their featured singer Edie Brickell who was very soulful. One of the funniest parts was when they sang a song "for the atheists", since of course all of the other religions have their hymns, and they didn't want us to feel left out. He is one hell of a banjo player, and I am glad that we got a chance to see him in person. Here are a few of the better shots that I got during the show. Sorry they aren't the greatest, it was freezing outside!
