We can find out later this month, when the comic/author/banjo player/multiple Grammy winner releases an album of original banjo songs called The Crow: New Songs For The Five-String Banjo. Appearing on the record: Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs (with whom Martin has previously collaborated), and Eugene Levy (on piano!). What with Rick Moranis also dabbling in the genre, is the time right for a bluegrass tribute to Little Shop Of Horrors? Or, hell, My Blue Heaven? [USA Today]
