Steve Martin is best known for his acting, the comedian is also a skilled banjo player — so skilled that the International Bluegrass Music Association is honoring him with a Distinguished Achievement Award this year alongside Alison Brown, Murphy Henry, Bashful Brother Oswald, and the International Bluegrass Music Museum.
Martin previously won a Grammy for 2009’s The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo, the actor’s first album entirely dedicated to his music. The two albums that followed — 2011’s Rare Bird Alert and 2013’s Love Has Come for You — went on to receive Grammy nominations.
The International Bluegrass Music Awards will take place on Oct. 1 during the annual World of Bluegrass events, which runs this year from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 in Raleigh, North Carolina. See the full list of honorees and nominees here.
