Steve Martin Plays the Banjo

Even though he’s mostly known for his comedic abilities, Steve Martin is actually quite musically talented as well. Martin is both a trained pianist and banjo player, and he performs quite often in public. In 2009, he released an album entitled The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo, and it ended up winning the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year in 2010.
