Steve Martin performs in Milwaukee Tuesday

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Steve Martin has won an Emmy, hosted the Oscars and done standup comedy. Now he's in Wisconsin to play his banjo.

Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers will perform at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee Tuesday night.

Earlier this year his album, "The Crow/New Songs For The Five-String Banjo" won a Grammy for best bluegrass album.

He won an Emmy in the late 1960's as a writer for "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour." He won Grammy Awards for his two comedy albums and had a gold record with his single "King Tut."

Martin also won a Grammy in 2003 for best country instrumentalist for his playing on Earl Scruggs' 75th Anniversary album.
