Steve Martin can act, tell jokes, write, and produce, but these days he seems to be receiving the most buzz for his music. A long-time banjo player, the 68-year-old Martin has two albums under his belt and one Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album in 2009 for The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo.

This May, the noted funnyman will be preforming live at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center, along with the Steep Canyon Rangers and Edie Brickell. Martin collaborated with the Steep Canyon rangers on the album Rare Bird Alert in 2011 and recently wrapped up an LP with former New Bohemian Brickell, Love Has Come for You. The disc is expected to hit shelves in April.

Tickets went on sale earlier today and range from $49.50-$79.50. They’re available at the North Charleston Coliseum ticket office, all Ticketmaster outlets (including select Publix stores), by phone (800) 745-3000, or online at For more information visit
