Steve Martin and Edie Brickell perform with the esteemed bluegrass combo Steep Canyon Rangers in a one-night-only performance at The Bushnell’s Mortensen Hall on Thursday, June 19 at 7:30 p.m. A unique hybrid of bluegrass and comedy, the evening showcases material from their Grammy-nominated album Love Has Come For You, as well as songs from Martin's album Rare Bird Alert and other new tunes.

Ticket prices start at $29.50 and are on sale now. Tickets are available online at; by phone at 860-987-5900; or in person at The Bushnell box office, 166 Capitol Avenue, Hartford. The Bushnell engagement of Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers Featuring Edie Brickell is sponsored by Bank of America.

This Steve and Edie collaboration of banjo playing and folksy, bluesy vocals presents traditional storytelling with modern touches. Steve, Edie, and the Rangers invite us into an intimate world of eloquent, thoughtful songwriting and entertaining, playful banjo picking, similar to what you’d hear in a living room concert.

This highly anticipated tour is the first for Martin and Brickell. Their new album, Love Has Come For You, features 13 eloquent, rootsy compositions (including the Grammy-winning title track) that combine Martin’s inventive five-string banjo work with Brickell’s distinctive vocals and vivid, detail-rich lyrics. The album also features the esteemed bluegrass combo The Steep Canyon Rangers, with whom Martin recorded his previous Grammy-nominated album, Rare Bird Alert.
