Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, Edie Brickell, Oregon Symphony

AP KRYZA
7:30 pm., Thursday October 03 | Sold out.
 
[BLUEGRASS] During his wild and crazy heyday, Steve Martin would often pull out a banjo, plucking away as he cracked one-liners. “Hey, this guy’s good,” he said during his immortal “Ramblin’ Guy” skit on The Muppet Show. That’s an understatement, to be sure, but few would have thought the star of The Jerk and the, ugh, Cheaper By the Dozen franchise would have a side career as one of the most renowned pluckers in the country. Here, the silver-haired superstar joins with renowned quintet Steep Canyon Rangers, the Oregon Symphony and Edie “What I Am” Brickell for a night of pure, unadulterated bluegrass, and the very likely chance Martin will have to dodge people yelling out shit like, “Wild and crazy guy! WHOOOOOO!”
