Wild and crazy guy Steve Martin’s affiliation with the Steep Canyon Rangers may have led to wider recognition for the group when he invited them to tour as his backing band in 2009, but the North Carolina-based bluegrass act already held a stellar reputation among fans on the pick ‘n‘ grin circuit. With the release of its ninth album, Radio, produced by renowned guitarist Jerry Douglas, SCR has delivered a modern push on the traditional genre that begs for airplay and

predicting Grammy awards.

Friday 12/11. $21-24, 7pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
