Steve Martin, the only person to win Grammys in both bluegrass and comedy, will team up with Edie Brickell, the voice of the 1988 classic "What I Am," July 22 at State Theatre in Minneapolis.

 

Banjo picker Martin and singer-songwriter Brickell are making an album together, “Love Has Come For You,” due April 23 – and undertaking a 27-city tour this spring and summer.
