Gallery: Steve Martin, Edie Brickell, and the Steep Canyon Rangers at the PAC

On Memorial Day evening, the North Charleston Performing Arts Center welcomed veteran comedian, actor, and musician Steve Martin, who performed with North Carolina-based folk/bluegrass ensemble Steep Canyon Rangers and special guest vocalist Edie Brickell.

Martin has been collaborating with the Rangers since 2009 when they partnered for a broadcast performance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion. They released a collaborative album last year titled Rare Bird Alert.

Charleston-based musician/photographer John Birkenheuer caught the concert for Metronome Charleston. “It was a great show, and everything went well,” he reported. “Steve Martin definitely held his own. Between each song, he did comedy in relation to music and the band. It was enjoyable.”
