Following his successful tour last year in support of his GRAMMY award-winning Rounder Records The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo CD, Steve Martin, once again joined by the award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers, will embark on a 2010 music tour beginning on April 19th in Detroit, which includes Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo appearances, and is expected to continue into October.

The Crow spent 30 weeks atop the Billboard Bluegrass Album charts which made it the #1 Bluegrass Album for 2009 and is currently #2, this week, after 52 weeks on the chart. The Crow won the "Best Bluegrass Album" GRAMMY Award at the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards in January bringing his total GRAMMY wins to four. An album 45 years in the making, Martin wrote or arranged and performed all of the songs on his CD. The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo features special vocal appearances by Mary Black, Vince Gill, Tim O'Brien, Dolly Parton and instrumental guest spots by Earl Scruggs, John McEuen (CD producer,) Stuart Duncan, Jerry Douglas, Pete Wernick and Tony Trischka.

"I am very excited to begin my banjo tour with the Steep Canyon Rangers," commented Martin. "It has been a long time dream of mine to travel around the country with a bunch of guys."
