As we reported in our post inÂ January this year, Steve Martin released his first banjo album ever, titled The Crow: New Songs For the 5-String Banjo. Pete helped produce the CD and is featured on it. It’s now been issued on Rounder Records with an extra track and an informative and entertaining booklet.

Along with a stellar cast, Pete plays on Pretty Flowers, sung by Vince Gill and Dolly Parton, and on the instrumental, Words Unspoken, that he and Steve co-wrote. Martin created all the material on the record except several traditional tunes in a clawhammer medley.
This record will show what a good player Steve really is, as well as a creative force on the banjo – Pete Wernick
Other special guests include Earl Scruggs, Tony Trischka, Tim O’Brien, Mary Black, David Amram, and producer John McEuen. Steve even does some singing, on the hilarious “Late For School”. An interesting record.
