Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers and featuring Edie Brickell will perform July 30 at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. The show is at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and may be obtained at the Wagner Noël box office, www.wagnernoel.com or ETIX at 1-800-514-3849.

Martin is in his fifth decade of a uniquely varied and accomplished career in which he's excelled as a comedian, actor, author and playwright, and as a Grammy-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer, according to a release from Wagner Noël. His fellow Texas native Edie Brickell arrived on the national scene in the late 1980s fronting the New Bohemians, and has since "carved out an iconoclastic solo career that's solidified her reputation as a uniquely compelling singer and a songwriter of rare insight," the release stated.

Their new album, "Love Has Come for You,” is the product of a vibrant songwriting partnership that took on a life of its own after Martin invited Brickell to write lyrics for a banjo tune he recently produced.

"The results of the pair's unconventional co-writing method are inspiring, combining the gentle yet feisty humanity of Brickell's vocals with the effortless economy of Martin's banjo work (and of course his comedic sense)," the release stated.
