With two Grammy nominations, he’s also written for string quartets. He will perform Friday at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.

He’s had a famous name, too, under his wing. Comedian Steve Martin joined him as a second banjo on the album Double Banjo Bluegrass Spectacular, and they’ve stayed in touch since.
