The album also features the esteemed bluegrass combo the Steep Canyon Rangers with whom Martin recorded his latest Grammy nominated album Rare Bird Alert.

The tour will showcase new material performed by Martin and Brickell, along with the unique hybrid of bluegrass and comedy that Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers have been delighting audiences with at their sold-out, critically acclaimed shows.
