Martin performed with the Steep Canyon Rangers during the Bonnaroo music festival in 2010.

Steve Martin needs no introduction as a comic, actor and writer. But these days, he'd prefer to be known as a bluegrass star. Martin has won multiple Grammy Awards for his bluegrass recordings, including 2009's The Crow: Songs for the 5-String Banjo. He's graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. And he's championed the art form almost as much as he changed comedy in the 1970s. So when Martin and his band, the Steep Canyon Rangers, come to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, you can bet it'll be packed. Martin will perform at the Mahaffey on May 23, according to his website. Bonus: They'll be joined by popular singer-songwriter Edie Brickell. Martin and Brickell are teaming up for a new album, Love Will Come For You, which comes out in April. Tickets are $59.50-$139. They're on sale now for Mahaffey members, and will go on sale to the public on Feb. 1, according to Martin's website.
