Steve Martin Cancelled

Steve Martin has cancelled his scheduled Oct. 19th banjo-playing performance with the Steep Canyon Rangers at Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center. It won't be rescheduled, but ticket buyers can get their money back at point of purchase - details on that here at the Kimmel web site. No reason has been given, but poor ticket sales are the suspected culprit. I guess there's not a huge demand out there for celebrity bluegrass. Too bad: His album The Crow: New Songs For The Five String Banjo isn't half bad, plus I had an interview with him in the can. Here he is playing "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" with Earl Scruggs on Letterman from a few years back.
