Steve Martin – officially the world’s coolest banjo player and the only one to sponsor a major annual Banjo music prize whilst also holding down other day jobs such as acting, writing books and collecting modern art – has a new long awaited album coming soon. It’s called The Long Awaited Album, and also features Steve’s good bluegrass buddies The Steep Canyon Rangers. The first song to be released from this is Caroline which is a typically idiosyncratic take on a break-up song. It doesn’t rock, but it does Bluegrass.
