In the roughly three years since Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers have been touring together they have delighted audiences at Bonnaroo, New Orleans' Jazzfest and The Newport Folk Festival to name a few. They have embarked on four widely acclaimed tours with critics such as The Orange County Register noting "what's so heartening and wonderful to see is Steve Martin back on stage, doing both things he does best—playing banjo and being funny." Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers' latest album, Rare Bird Alert, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200. The album was also nominated for a Grammy for "Best Bluegrass Album" and features special guest vocals from Paul McCartney and the Dixie Chicks. Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers were named Entertainer of the Year at the 2011 International Bluegrass Association Awards.
