Steve Martin: Rare Bird Alert

Email a Friend

Join us for an encore presentation of our Greene Space show with actor, author and banjo player Steve Martin and comedian Mike Birbiglia.

When Martin won a Grammy last year for his debut as a banjo player, he impressed a tough crowd: bluegrass purists. He joins us with his crack backing band, the Steep Canyon Rangers, to play songs from his album, “Rare Bird Alert.” Later: Birbiglia, a comedian and monologist who woke up audiences with a stage show and book called "Sleepwalk With Me," tells us about his off-Broadway production called "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend." Plus: we announce the winner of our Remix the Rails song contest.

This is a repeat edition of Soundcheck. Please note: The full webcast of this performance is not available.
