Giveaway: Steve Martin, Aug. 3 at Arkansas Music Pavilion

Steve Martin


This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Spencer.

Actor, comedian, and banjo shredder Steve Martin is coming to town next month.

The legendary performer will be at the Arkansas Music Pavilion with The Steep Canyon Rangers and singer-songwriter Edie Brickell for a show on Sunday, Aug. 3.

Martin, who made a name for himself as a stand-up comedian and writer in the early 1970s before becoming a superstar in classic films like The Jerk and as a regular on Saturday Night Live, has turned heads in recent years for his musical ability. The multi-talented performer is a world-class banjo player, and his 2013 album Love Has Come for You resulted in a Grammy Award for Best Americana song, and a nomination for best album in its genre.

His live show with the Steep Canyon Rangers showcases Martin’s banjo-playing ability, and of course, a bit of his comedy background comes through in the performances as well.

Brickell, who collaborated with Martin on Love Has Come for You, is also set to perform.

We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the show. Good luck.
