Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, So Familiar, feature CD, 10/30
Writer, comedian and longtime banjo ace Steve Martin has been especially active on the musical front in recent years, issuing a couple of highly acclaimed bluegrass efforts both on his own and with the Steep Canyon Rangers. He also forged a fruitful partnership with singer-songwriter Edie Brickell, which debuted on 2013’s Love Has Come for You. On October 30th — the same month that Martin receives a Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association — the duo issues its follow-up, So Familiar. The record was inspired in part by the pair’s collaborative musical, Bright Star, which debuted in San Diego last year and opens at the Kennedy Center in D.C. in December.
KSUT will feature 'So Familiar' on October 30, in its entirety, at 12 noon.
