Who would think Steve Martain would join Earl Scruggs in this rendition. Man can he pick a Banjo.

Walt,

Steve Martin has quite a career in music.  

From Wikipedia:
Quote While he has played banjo since an early age, and included music in his comedy routines from the beginning of his professional career, he has increasingly dedicated his career to music since the 2000s, acting less and spending much of his professional life playing banjo, recording, and touring with various bluegrass acts, including Earl Scruggs, with whom he won a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance in 2002. He released his first solo music album, The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo, in 2009, for which he won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.

BTW, I saw a lot of familiar faces in that bunch, Vince Gill being one of my all time favorites.  Saw him perform in Branson and he is just as good in person as on TV or CD.  Didn't realize how tall he really is.  

Performers in video: Earl Scruggs, banjo - Glen Duncan, fiddle - Randy Scruggs, acoustic guitar - Steve Martin, 2nd banjo solo - Vince Gill, 1st electric guitar solo - Marty Stuart, mandolin - Gary Scruggs, harmonica - Albert Lee, 2nd electric guitar solo - Paul Shaffer, piano - Jerry Douglas, dobro - Leon Russell, organ - Glenn Worf, bass - Harry Stinson, drums.

Steve Martin's father was the director our local Board of Realtors many years ago. He would lead a sing along at the weekly breakfast meeting. Had a great voice. I guess musical talent was in the DNA.
