A Capitol Fourth

Watch Steve Martin Sizzle

Clip: Season 2011 | 13m 18s

On America's biggest birthday party, A Capitol Fourth, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers perform a remarkable set of bluegrass tunes, including Steve's original song written just for the show. Me and Paul Revere tells the tale of Revere's ride from the point of view of the horse and the Orange Blossom Special is sure to please!
