Martin, who has starred in films such as Planes, Train And Automobiles and Father Of The Bride, released his first bluegrass album 'The Crow: New Songs For The 5 String Banjo' in 2009.

He is also set to play three UK dates in July, beginning at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo on July 8. He then moves onto Manchester's O2 Apollo on July 9 and finishes up on July 10 at the Glasgow Clyde Cultural Hall.

He will play with bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers on all dates.
