Most people know Steve Martin as a successful comedian and actor, but truth be told this remarkable man has many talents.
If you mostly remember Steve from his comedic performances on Saturday Night Live and his many blockbuster movies, you’ll probably be surprised to learn that he’s also a world-class musician.
Over the years he has performed alongside some of the music world’s biggest stars, including Earl Scruggs, Bela Fleck, Paul Simon – and even Kermit the Frog.
Here’s a fantastic short video featuring the clawhammer banjo skills of Steve Martin as he performs a medley of his own songs, accompanied by the Steep Canyon Rangers.
